Ya viene el niñito

Lyrics - Spanish

(Salvador Bustamante Celi, 1976-1935, Ecuador)

Ya viene el niñito jugando entre flores
Y los pajaritos le cantan amores

Ya se despertaron los pobres pastores
Y le van llevando pajitas y flores

La paja está fría
La cama está dura
La virgen María, llora con ternura

Ya no mas se caen todas las estrellas
A los pies del niño mas blancos que ellas
Niñito bonito manojo de flores
Llora pobresito por los pecadores

English Translation - Here comes the little boy

Here comes the little boy, playing among the flowers
And the birds sing love songs

The poor shepherds have already awakened
And they are taking him straw and flowers

The straw is cold
The bed is hard
The Virgin Mary cries tenderly

All of the stars don’t fall anymore
At the child’s feet, he is whiter than they are
Little baby boy, bunch of flowers
Poor thing, he cries for the sinners
