Mittwoch Matinee

Tu scendi dalle stelle, o Re del Cielo,
E vieni in una grotta al freddo, al gelo.
O Bambino mio Divino,
Io ti vedo qui tremar.
O Dio beato,
E quanto ti costò l’avermi amato!

A Te, che sei del mondo il Creatore
Mancano panni e fuoco, o mio Signore.
Più m’innamora,
Giacché ti fece Amor povero ancora.

You descend from the stars, o King of Heaven
And come in a cave with cold and chill
O my divine Child,
I see you here shivering.
O blessed God
How much it cost you to have loved me!

You, the Creator of the World,
Lacking cover and heat, my Lord,
Makes me love you more,
Because Love made you poor for us.
