A Carol a Day

By Father Johann Roten, S.M.

O Bambino (Tu scendi dalle Stelle)
holy Child you descend from the stars

Alfonso Liguori, 1732

One cold and blessed winter
In ancient Bethlehem
A Child was born to save us;
Sing Hallelujah, Amen.

Tu scendi dalle stelle,
O Re del cielo
E vieni in'una grotta,
Al freddo, al gielo.

O Bambino, mio divino,
lo ti vedo qui tremar
O Dio beato,
O quanto ti costo la vermi
