Gavriel - ma ata sho'el?
Mal'ach m'tayel bashamayim
Gavriel, im Elo-him noel
Gavriel, na'ar mitpalel
what do you ask
Angel travelling through the heavens
if God should lock
* these words appear in the story of Noah,
who sent out a dove to see if the waters had abated.
I wonder if the angel Gabriel is associated with the flood,
and if the other words in the song about the angel come from Jewish legends or teachings.
If anyone knows, please feel free to send your comments.
** In the Hebrew there's a play on words & rhyme -
shirat shamayim (poetry/prayer of heaven) vs. shirat hashnayim (poetry of two)
