Lyrics

Eu hei-de dar ao Menino
Uma fitinha pró chapéu
E ele também me há de dar
Um lugarzinho no céu.

Refrain
Olhei para o céu, estava estrelado
Vi o Deus Menino em palhas deitado.
Em palhas deitado, em palhas estendido,
Filho duma rosa, dum cravo nascido!

Estas palavras disse a Virgem
Ai quando nasceu o Menino
Ai vinde cá meu anjo loiro
Meu sacramento divino Refrain

Translation

I will give to the Boy
A little ribbon for his hat
And he also will give me
A little place in the sky.

Refrain
I looked at the sky, it was starry,
I saw the Christ Child lying on straw.
On straw lying down, in stretched straws,
Son of a rose, of a carnation born!

These words said the Virgin
There when the boy was born
Here comes my blonde angel.
My divine sacrament. Refrain
