Luciano Ravasio - Magi (Angol translation)

Angol translation

Wise Men

Three Wise Men, you who have made such a long journey
on your camels to worship the Baby,
across lands and borderless deserts
you have faced perils and strains.
 
But how did you manage, among this mayhem,
to arrive at your destination safe and sound,1
with so many Herods and all the rogues2
that have destroyed the peace in the world nowadays?
 
The Wise Men smile at me and then outstretch their arm,
they point the star to me: with its splendor,
it has accompanied them faithfully before laying down
on the roof of the Lord’s hut.
 
Brothers, the star is shining today too,
it rises to lead us on the ways of love,
however, to see it, we need to look up
and open our heart wide to its dim light.
 
However, to see it, we need to look up
and open our heart wide to its dim light.
