La Virgen lava pañales,
Y los tiende en el romero
Y los pajaritos cantan,
Y el agua se variendo.

Pastores, venid. Pastores, llegad.
Adorar al Niño, a adorar al Niño.
Que nacido ya.

El Niño, Dios, se ya perdido,
Y todos le están buscando.


A la orilla del mar peces estaba pescando



translation


The Virgin washes swaddling clothes,
while the Child is sleeping.
And the little birds sing,
And the brook is sighing.

Shepherds, come, shepherds arrive.

to worship the infant

who has just been born.

The Child of God is missing

and everyone sought Him -

only to find the Child by the waters - fishing.
