My favorite lyrics, Italian Christmas carols, memory of many Christmas days spent with the family in the coziness of a decorated room singing along with the crackling of the fire while the snow gently lays onto the outside world…

Tu scendi dalle stelle

Tu scendi dalle stelle, o Re del cielo, You come down from the stars, oh King of the Heavens
e vieni in una grotta al freddo e al gelo. (2 v.) and enter into a grotto, in the cold and the ice
O Bambino mio divino, Oh my divine Baby
io ti vedo qui a tremar; I see you here, shivering
o Dio beato ! oh blessed God! 
Ah, quanto ti costò l’avermi amato ! (2 v.) Ah, how much it cost you to have loved me! 

A te, che sei del mondo il Creatore, You who are of the world the Creator

Caro eletto pargoletto, Dear little chosen child
quanto questa povertà how much this poverty 
più m’innamora, increases my love
giacché ti fece amor povero ancora. (2 v.) since love made you poor again!
