Das ist ein Flöten und Geigen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das ist ein Flöten und Geigen,
Trompeten schmettern [drein]1;
Da tanzt [wohl]2 den Hochzeitreigen
Die Herzallerliebste mein.

Das ist ein Klingen und Dröhnen,
[Von Pauken und Schalmei'n]3;
Dazwischen schluchzen und stöhnen
Die [guten]4 Engelein.

זוהי נגינה בחליל ובכינור

Language: Hebrew (עברית) after the German (Deutsch)

זוהי נגינה בחליל ובכינור, חצוצרות מצטרפות בתרועה; שם רוקדת את מחול החתונה אהובת לבי. זהו צלצול ורעש, תופי דוד וחליל רועים. בין הצלילים מתייפחים ונאנחים המלאכים החביבים.
