For all three versions you will find the lyrics and the translation. The third song shows the lyrics also on video. Have fun listening and singing along!

1. Oh Tannenbaum – Andrea Bocelli

The famous Italian singer Andrea Bocelli sings the German song “Oh Tannenbaum” in three languages: in Italian, German and English. We have translated the Italian part into English and the German and English part into Italian.

Lyrics

Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum
risplendi nella notte!
Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum,
risplendi nella notte!
Le luci tue scintillano,
come le stelle brillano.
Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum,
risplendi nella notte!

Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum,
wie treu sind deine Blätter
Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum,
wie treu sind deine Blätter
Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit,
nein auch im Winter, wenn es schneit
Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum,
wie treu sind deine Blätter

Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us.
Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us!
They’re green when summer days are bright
they’re green when winter’s snow is white.
Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree
Your branches green delight us!

Oh albero che illumini la notte di Natale
Le luci tue ricordano la luce del Signore.
Ogni mia notte splenderà se la tua luce brillerà
Oh albero che illumini la notte di Natale

Translation

Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum.
you shine in the night!
Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum,
you shine in the night!
Your lights are shining,

like the stars they twinkle.
Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum,
you shine in the night!

Oh abete, oh abete
come sono fedeli le tue foglie
Oh abete, oh abete
come sono fedeli le tue foglie

Tu non sei verde solo in estate,
no, anche in inverno, quando nevica

Oh abete, oh abete
come sono fedeli le tue foglie

Oh albero di Natale, oh albero di Natale,
il verde dei tuoi rami ci delizia.
Oh albero di Natale, oh albero di Natale,
il verde dei tuoi rami ci delizia!
Sono verdi quando le giornate estive sono luminose
sono verdi quando la neve dell’inverno è bianca.
Oh albero di Natale, oh albero di Natale
i tuoi rami verdi ci deliziano!

Oh tree you light up the Christmas night
Your lights resemble the light of the Lord
All my nights will shine if your light will twinkle.
Oh tree you light up the Christmas night

2. Abete di Natale

Lyrics

Nel buio tu risplendi a noi
Abete di Natale
Sui rami tuoi scintillano
le luci colorate

Dei bimbi gli occhi brillano
di Dio le luci vedono
Accanto ad un presepe c’è
l’Abete di Natale

Ricordi a tutti gli uomini
i doni che i pastori
portarono al bambin Gesù
la notte di Natale.

Col cuore pien di giubilo
li misero sui rami tuoi.
Per questo festeggiamo te
Abete di Natale.

Abete che ricordi a noi
la notte di Natale!
Nel gelo dell’inverno sei
un segno di speranza:
All’uom di buona volontà
la strada tu ricorderai
che porta dritta, come te,
al cielo del Signore

All’uom di buona volontà
la strada tu ricorderai
che porta dritta, come te,
al cielo del Signore

Translation

In the dark you shine to us
Christmas fir
On your branches shine
the colourful lights

The eyes of the children shine
from God they see the lights
Next to a Christmas crib there is
the Christmas fir

You remind all men
the gifts that the shepherds
brought to the child Jesus
on Christmas night.

With the heart full of jubilation
they put them on your branches.
For this we celebrate thee
Christmas Fir.

Fir, you remind us of
Christmas night!
In the frost of winter you are
a sign of hope:
To a man of good will
the road you will remember
that leads straight, like you,
to the sky of the Lord

To the man of good will
The road you will remember
that leads straight, like you,
to the sky of the Lord

3. Oh albero

Lyrics

S’accendono e brillano
gli alberi di Natale.
S’accendono e radunano
grandi e piccini intorno

I rami si trasformano
con bacche rosse e fili d’or.
Risplendono e sfavillano
gli alberi di Natale

S’innalzano e risuonano
i canti di Natale.
Ricordano agli uomini:
giustizia, pace e amore.

La loro dolce musica
giunge fra tutti i popoli.
Ripete ancora agli uomini:
giustizia, pace e amore

S’accendono e brillano
gli alberi di Natale.
S’accendano e radunano
grandi e piccini intorno

I rami si trasformano
con bacche rosse e fili d’or.
Risplendono e sfavillano
gli alberi di Natale

Fra i canti degli arcangeli
ritorna il bambinello,
riposa nel presepio
lo scalda l’asinello.

I rami verdi toccano
la capannina di carton
e l’albero illumina
la culla del Signore.

Translation

They light up and shine
the Christmas trees.
They light up and gather
big and small around

Branches transform
with red berries and gold threads.
They shine and sparkle
the Christmas trees

They rise and resound
the Christmas carols.
They remind men of:
justice, peace and love.

Their sweet music
reaches all peoples.
He repeats again to the men:
Justice, peace and love

They light up and twinkle
the Christmas trees.
They light up and gather
big and small around

Branches transform
with red berries and gold threads.
They shine and sparkle
the Christmas trees

Among the songs of the archangels
the child returns,
he rests in the crib
the donkey warms him up.

The green branches touch
the cardboard shed
and the tree illuminates
the cradle of the Lord.
