Alegrem-se os Céus e a Terra

Lyrics - Portuguese

(Folk song from Portugal)

Refrain
Alegrem-se o céu e a terra
Cantemos com alegria
Já nasceu o Deus menino
Filho da Virgem Maria

Entrai, pastores, entrai
Por este portal sagrado.
Vinde adorar o menino
Numas palhinhas deitado. Refrain

Em belém à meia-noite
Meia-noite de natal
Nasceu Jesus num presépio
Maravilha sem igual. Refrain

Ai que menino tão belo
Ai que tanto graça tem
Ai que tanto se parece
Com a virgem sua mãe. Refrain

English Translation – Rejoice Heaven and Earth

Refrain
Rejoice heaven and earth
Let’s sing with joy
The son of God was born
Son of the Virgin Mary

Come in, shepherds, come in
Through this sacred portal.
Come adore the boy
In a few straws lying down. Refrain

In Bethlehem at midnight
Christmas midnight
Jesus was born in a crib
Unparalleled wonder. Refrain

Oh what a beautiful boy
Oh that’s so funny
Oh that looks so much like
The virgin your mother. Refrain
