Italian.png Italian text

Dolce fiamma, fuoco ardente,
tu mi struggi lentamente.
Ma fa' presto, vieni, o Dio:
d'abbracciarti ho un gran disio.
Gesù mio, Gesù mio,
io con voce sospirosa,
ma soave, amorosa,
io sospiro il tuo Natal.

Bambinello bello bello,
vieni, vieni e non tardare.
Bambinello bello bello,
io sospiro il tuo Natale.
Io sospiro vagheggiarti
e tenerti stretto stretto
sovra il cuore, sovra il petto,
e baciare il tuo visin.

English.png English translation

Sweet flame, ardent fire,
slowly thou consume me.
But come early, come, o God:
I long for hugging thee.
My Jesus, my Jesus,
with plaintive,
but pleasing, amorous voice,
I yearn for thy Christmas.

Beautiful infant Jesus,
come, come, do not delay.
Beautiful infant Jesus,
I yearn for thy Christmas.
I yearn for admiring thee
and holding thee tight
on my heart, on my chest,
and kissing thy pretty face.

Translation by Francesco Spiga
