O Ġesù ħelwa tarbija

Lyrics - Maltese

(Folk song from Malta)

Refrain
O Ġesù ħelwa tarbija
Ejja twieled ġewwa fija
Ġesù tfajjel, frott l-imħabba
Twieled f’qalbi,
Miegħi trabba.

1. O Re ħelu tal-imħabba
Il-qalb tiegħi bik tixxabba
Ejja, o Alla, Feddej tiegħi
Istrieħ f’qalbi, oqgħod miegħi. Refrain

2. Kemm int ħelu, Ġesù tiegħi
Kemm nixtieq inħaddnek miegħi
Ħarstek ħelwa tiddi b’dija
Li l-qalb tiegħi b’ferħ timlieha. Refrain

3. Ġesù ħelu, kemm inħobbok
Bl-akbar għożża qalbi żżommok
Il-qalb tiegħi ħeġġiġhieli
Ħudha kollha, qaddishieli. Refrain

4. Narak tninni f’dik in-nieqa
Ninsa għal kollox kollha d-dieqa
Nistħajjilni ġa fil-ġenna
Bik nitgħaxxaq u nithenna. Refrain

Refrain
Oh sweet baby Jesus
Let him be born inside me
Jesus is a child, fruit of love
He was born in my heart,
He grew up with me.

My heart aches for you
Come, O God, my Redeemer
Rest in my heart, stay with me. Refrain

How I want to embrace you with me
Your sweet gaze shines brightly
That my heart with joy fills it. Refrain

With the greatest love my heart holds you
My heart encouraged me
Take it all, sanctify me. Refrain

4. I see you sleeping in that cradle
I completely forget all the sadness
I’m already in heaven
With you I rejoice and grow stronger. Refrain
