Gesu Bambino

Gesu Bambino

Text:  Translated by Frederick H. Martens ca. 1923

Music:  Pietro Yon, 1917

 

Thought for the Day:  Read the words to this beautiful Italian Christmas carol.

Now re-read the last line of the second verse:  “From paradise to earth He came, that we with Him might dwell.”  That phrase changes the song from the innocence of the infant Jesus and introduces us to the Savior Christ who was and is and will be. Jesus came from paradise to earth. That means he existed with God in heaven before he was born. Then he came to earth. Why? So that we with him might dwell. Are we going to dwell with him on earth? No. We are going to dwell with him in heaven. This is the resurrection Jesus in a Christmas song!

When blossoms flowered ‘mid the snows upon a winter night

Was born the Child, the Christmas Rose, the King of Love and Light.

The angels sang, the shepherds sang, the grateful earth rejoiced,

And at His blessed birth, the stars their exultation voiced.

 

O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

 

Again the heart with rapture glows to greet the holy night

That gave the world its Christmas Rose, the King of Love and Light.

Let every voice acclaim His name, the grateful chorus swell,

From paradise to earth He came, that we with Him might dwell.

 

O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.
