Nella nostra ricerca di canti natalizi famosi e meno noti, abbiamo trovato tre canzoni popolari non troppo conosciute in inglese che vogliamo comunque riproporvi:

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

You know Dasher and Dancer

And Prancer and Vixen,

Comet and Cupid

And Donner and Blitzen.

But do you recall

The most famous reindeer of all?

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph

Play in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve

Santa came to say,

“Rudolph with your nose so bright

Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Then all the reindeer loved him

And they shouted out with glee,

“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

You’ll go down in history!”

What Child is This?

What child is this, who, laid to rest

On Mary’s lap, is sleeping?

Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,

While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King,

Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:

Haste, haste to bring him laud,

The Babe, the Son of Mary!

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh,

Come peasant king to own Him,

The King of kings, salvation brings,

Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

Raise, raise the song on high,

The Virgin sings her lullaby:

Joy, joy, for Christ is born,

The Babe, the Son of Mary!

We Three Kings

We three kings of orient are, bearing gifts we traverse afar

Field and fountain, moor and mountain, following yonder star.

Oh, star of wonder, star of night, star with royal beauty bright.

Westward leading, still proceeding,

Guide with thy perfect light.

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain,

Gold I bring to crown him again

King for ever, ceasing never over us all to reign. …..

Frankincense to offer have I, incense owns a Deity nigh

Pray’r and praising, all men raising,

Worship him, God most high, oh…..

Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume breathes a life of gathering gloom.

Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, sealed in the stone cold tomb.

Glorious now behold him arise, king and God and sacrifice

Alleluia, alleluia, heaven to earth replies. ….
