Christbaum

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie schön geschmückt der festliche Raum!
Die Lichter funkeln am Weihnachtsbaum!
O fröhliche Zeit! o seliger Traum!

Die Mutter sitzt in der Kinder Kreis;
Nun schweiget alles auf ihr Geheiß:
Sie singet des Christkinds Lob und Preis.

Und rings, vom Weihnachtsbaum erhellt,
Ist schön in Bildern aufgestellt
Des heiligen Buches Palmenwelt.

Die Kinder schauen der Bilder Pracht,
Und haben wohl des Singen acht,
Das tönt so süß in der Weihenacht!

O glücklicher Kreis im festlichen Raum!
O goldne Lichter am Weihnachtsbaum!
O fröhliche Zeit! o seliger Traum!

L'albero di Natale

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Come è adorna la casa per la festa! 
Le luci splendono sull'albero di Natale! 
O tempo lieto! O sogno beato!

La madre siede circondata dai bambini; 
ora fa un cenno di silenzio 
e canta le lodi di Gesù Bambino. 

E intorno, illuminato dall'albero di Natale, 
è rappresentato in immagini 
il mondo delle palme del libro sacro. 

I bambini guardano la bellezza delle immagini 
e cantano con grande attenzione, 
è così dolce sentirli, nella notte santa! 

O quadro felice nello scenario di festa! 
O luci d'oro sull'albero di natale! 
O tempo lieto! O sogno beato!
