O menino esta dormindo

Lyrics - Portuguese

(Folk song from Portugal)

O menino está dormindo
nas palhinhas despidinho. (repeat)
Os anjos lhe estão cantando
por amor tão pobrezinho. (repeat)

O menino está dormindo
nos braços da Virgem pura. (repeat)
Os anjos lhe estão cantando:
“hossana lá na altura”. (repeat)

O menino está dormindo
nos braços de São José. (repeat)
Os anjos lhe estão cantando:
“Gloria tibi Domine”. (repeat)

English Translation – The boy’s asleep

The boy’s asleep
lying in the straw, (repeat)
His angels are singing:
for the love of the poor child. (repeat)

The boy’s asleep
In the arms of the pure Virgen, (repeat)
His angels are singing:
” Hosanna in the highest heavens”. (repeat)

The boy’s asleep
In the arms of St. Joseph, (repeat)
His angels are singing:
“Gloria tibi Domine”. (repeat)
