Sunday Song – Easter Sunday - Domenica di Pasqua - Amedeo Minghi - Gerusalemme



Amedeo Minghi, an Italian singer songwriter who was  born in Rome Italy on 12 August 1947 is I think a perfect choice for this weeks Sunday Song with his beautiful rendition of ‘Gerusalemme’  'Jerusalem' a piece commissioned by the Vatican on the occasion of the 'Jubilee 2000'.

Italian Lyrics to Gerusalemme  - lyricsmania

Ti mostri al mondo,
schiuso dai Tuoi occhi.
D'oro ai tramonti,
all'alba spunti in fiore.
E' come miele abbandonarsi a Te,
E fuochi accesi ad ardere i Tuoi fianchi,
tracce nel tempo, segni per il cuore.
Ma come è pietra risalire a Te,
Sei Tu la Via
sei Tu l'Idea
l'universo della Vita, sei Tu
Sei Tu la Via,
L'universo della Vita, sei Tu.
Luce che accende le tenebre ai figli,
stella maestra, degli uomini.
Madre di tutte le Madri,
coro immenso,
di canti e preghiere
tessi una tela di pace
dal Tuo aspo Gerusalemme.
Voce di tutte le voci
nel silenzio lenisci il dolore.
Bella, fra tutte le spose
fra le belle desiderata,
fiera, dinnanzi al Sole
porti come mantello il Cielo.
Santa Gerusalemme
Benedetta, sei la speranza.
Confida nel Tuo nome
il respiro di tutta la Terra.


Italian to English translation – Google + Italian English Dictionary


You show the world,
hatched from your eyes.
Golden sunsets,
Dawn breaks in flower.
It 's like honey surrender to Thee,
It fires to burn, your hips,
tracks over time, signs for the heart.
But how to go back to stone You,
With You the Way
You're the Idea
the universe of Life, are You
Thou the Way,
The Universe of Life, You are.
Light that illuminates the darkness of their children,
star teacher of men.
Mother of all Mothers,
enormous choir,
songs and prayers
weave a web of peace
Your reel from Jerusalem.
Voice of all entries
Sooth our pain in silence.
Bella, of all the brides
among the beautiful desired
fair, in front of the Sun
ports as a cape Heaven.
Holy Jerusalem
Blessed are the hope.
Trust in Your name
the breath of all the Earth.
