Christmas Carols, Italian

This is not my Christmas Carol, composed by Pietro Yon in 1917. Not a very Carolling country Italy me thinks....

Nell'umile capanna
nel freddo e povertà
è nato il Santo pargolo
che il mondo adorerà.

Osanna, osanna cantano
con giubilante cor
i tuoi pastori ed angeli
o re di luce e amor.


Venite adoremus
venite adoremus
venite adoremus
Dominum.


O bel bambin non piangere
non piangere, Redentor!
la mamma tua cullandoti
ti bacia, O Salvator.

Osanna, osanna cantano
con giubilante cor
i tuoi pastori ed angeli
o re di luce e amor.


Venite adoremus
venite adoremus
venite adoremus
Dominum.

Ah! venite adoremus
Ah! adoremus Dominum
venite, venite
venite adoremus
adoremus
Dominum.




When blossoms flowered 'mid the snows
Upon a winter night,
Was born the Child, the Christmas Rose,
The King of Love and Light.

The angels sang, the shepherds sang,
The grateful earth rejoiced;
And at His blessed birth the stars
Their exultation voiced.

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Again the heart with rapture glows
To greet the holy night,
That gave the world its Christmas Rose,
Its King of Love and Light.

Let ev'ry voice acclaim His name,
The grateful chorus swell.
From paradise to earth He came
That we with Him might dwell.

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

    1. It was to me as well, there must be other Italian carols out there, but this is the one I could find. The kids choir remembers me of the times my daughter sung those carols in the choir..

    1. They are little monsters, aren't they. Can you give me the name of your dressmaker? On second thought, forget it!

      Thank you,
