Sono probabilmente i due canti di Natale più famosi e non saprei dire quale è il più bello. Scegliete voi, ecco i testi:

Oh Happy Day

Oh Happy Day
(Philip Doddridge)
Oh happy day, oh happy day
When Jesus washed, oh when He washed
When Jesus washed, He washed my sins away (oh happy day), Oh happy day

Oh happy day, oh happy day
When Jesus washed, oh when He washed
When Jesus washed, He washed the sins away (oh happy day), Oh happy day

(Coro)
He taught me how to watch and pray, watch and pray
and we’ll rejoice everyday, everyday

Oh happy day, oh happy day
When Jesus washed, oh when He washed
When Jesus washed, He washed the sins away (oh happy day), Oh happy day

 

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

A day or two ago,
I thought I’d take a ride,
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank;
Misfortune seemed his lot;
He got into a drifted bank,
And we, we got upsot.
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago,
The story I must tell
I went out on the snow
And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open sleigh,
He laughed as there
I sprawling lie,
But quickly drove away.
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Now the ground is white
Go it while you’re young,
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bob-tailed bay
Two-forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you’ll take the lead.
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
