An das Christuskind

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nun zieht mit seinem goldnen Schein
das liebe Christkind wieder ein
in unsre Häuser und Stuben,
da freun sich Mägdlein, Buben.

Was hat uns doch zur Weihnacht
das Christkind alles mitgebracht
an köstlichen Geschenken!
Wir wagten's nie zu denken.

Hab Dank, du liebes Himmelskind,
dass du uns also hold gesinnt!
Dein Lieben, unermessen,
wir wollen nie vergessen.

Wir wollen Herz und Sinn dir weihn,
stets artig, fleißig, folgsam sein,
damit du an uns allen
kannst haben Wohlgefallen!

Santa Claus

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The Christmas Bells are ringing clear,
The merry chime proclaims "Good cheer!"
They blend with children's sweet voices,
And every heart rejoices:

"Now tell me, who had ever thought
What nice things Santa Claus has brought,
And present in such number,
We cannot all remember!

Accept our thanks, from all us girls and boys,
For sweets and tarts are pretty toys!
Your love beyond all measure
Our grateful hearts shall treasure.

Out parents' wishes we'll obey,
We'll do our lessons day by day,
But, Santa Claus, remember:
To come again next December!"


From the Humperdinck score "Ausgewählte Lieder (Seven Songs)". In this compilation, the German title is "An das Christkind" yet is translated "Santa Claus".
