HOW SHALL I BLESS HIM 
WHAT BLESSINGS CAN I GIVE 

What blessings can I give this child, what can he be blessed with?
Asked the angel
What blessings can I give this child, what can he be blessed with?
Asked the angel

And he blessed him with a smile, bright as light
And he blessed him with big observing eyes
With them to catch every flower, every living creature or bird
And with a heart to feel what he sees.

What blessings can I give this adolesence , what can he be blessed with?
Asked the angel
What blessings can I give this adolesence, what can he be blessed with?
Asked the angel

And he blessed him with legs to dance for ever
And a soul to remeber all tunes
And a hand to collect shells on the beach
And a ear attentive to old and young

What blessings can I give this man , what can he be blessed with?
Asked the angel
What blessings can I give this man, what can he be blessed with?
Asked the angel

And he blessed that his hands which are used to flowers
Will succed in learning the might of the steel
And his legs to dance the roads journey
And lips to sing the command pace

What blessings can I give him , what can he be blessed with?
This child this young adult
What blessings can I give him, what can he be blessed with?
This child this young adult

I gave him all I could give
A song a smile and legs to dance
And a delicate hand and a trembling heart
What else can I bless you with?

This boy is now an angel
No one will bless him, he will never be blessed
God God God
If only you blessed him with life.

BENEDIRE

L angel custode si chiese: Con che
benedire il bimbo, con che?

Gli dette un sorriso di luce e splendor e due grandi occhi,
per tutto veder, per coglier gli uccelli,
le bestie ed i fior, e un cuor, per sentirli davvero nel cuor.

L angel custode si chiese: Con che
benedire il giovin, con che?

Gli dette due gambe, per bene ballar,
un anima adatta la musica a udir,
la mano per coglier conghiglie dal mar,
orecchie per grandi e piccini ascoltar

L angel custode si chiese: Con che
benedire il ragazzo, con che?

Gli disse: Le mani che colgono i fior,
la forza d acciaio imparino pur, le gambe che ballano,
sappian marciar, le labbra, che cantino per ubbidir!

L angel custode si disse: Ma s?,
benedico quest uomo cos?:

Gli ho dato gi? tutto, quel ch ? in mio poter:
il canto, il sorriso, il sapere ballar, la mano gentile,
sensibile il cuor, cos altro a quest uomo potrei regalar?

Che augurare al giovin? No so...
Ha gi? tutto. Di pi? non si pu?...

Il giovane adesso ? un angelo, ormai,
ed a benedirlo non serve, lo sai,
Oh Dio, oh Dio, mi scordai
d aggiungere un po di: A lungo Vivrai!
