Arrangement of the traditional Spanish Christmas song in which the Virgin Mary protects the lamb from the wolf


Riu, riu, chiu 
La guarda ribera 
Dios guardo el lobo 
De nuestra cordera 

[ Riu, riu, chiu 
The river bank protects it, 
As God kept the wolf from our lamb] 

El lobo rabioso La quiso morder 
Mas Dios poderoso La supo defender 

[The rabid wolf tried to bite her 
But God Almighty knew how to defend her] 

Quizola hazer que No pudiesse pecar 
Ni aun original Esta virgen no tuviera 

[He wished to create her impervious to sin 
Nor was there any original sin in this maid ] 

Este qu'es nacido es el gran monarca, 
Christo patriarca de carne vestido; 

[He who's now begotten is our mighty Monarch 
Christ, our Holy Father, in human flesh embodied] 

Hemos redemido con se hazer chiquito 
Aunqu'era infinito, finito se hiziera. 

[He has brought atonement by being born so humble 
Though He is immortal, as mortal was created] 

Yo vi mil Garzones que andavan cantando, 
Por aqui volando, haciendo mil sones, 
Diziendo a gascones Gloria sea en el cielo 
Y paz en el suelo qu'es Jesus nascieta. 
[A thousand singing herons 
I saw passing, 
Flying overhead, sounding 
A thousand voices 
Exulting, "Glory be in the 
heavens, and peace on earth, 
for Jesus has been born."]
