Vos, Virgen, soys nuestra Madre
que la quel fruto comió
Madrastra la llamo yo.

Vos como madre escogida
Rematastes nuestra rastra.

La otra como madrastra
Pueso en cuentas nuestra vida.

Ella la dexó perdita,
Quando por madre os tomó.
Madrastra la llamo yo.

You, O Virgin, are our mother;
The one who ate the fruit
I call stepmother.

You, our true mother,
Ended our punishment.

The other, as stepmother
put our lives in debt.

She lost everything;
Since as mother I have chosen you,
The other I call stepmother.
