1. Maria die soude naer Bethlehem gaen,
Kersavond voor den noene;
Sint Joseph soud al met haer gaen
om haer gezelschap te houden.

2. Het hageld', het sneeuwde, het maekte kwaed weêr,
de rijm lag op de daken;
Sint Joseph tegen Maria sprak:
‘Maria wat zullen wij maken?’

3. Maria die zei: ‘ik bender zoo moê,
laet ons een weinig rusten.’
- ‘Laet ons een weinig verder gaen,
aen een huizeken zullen wij rusten.’

4. Dat kleen kindje weende op Maria's schoot:
komt, engels van hierboven.
Komt, kroont dees' maagd, 't is meer als tijd
want zij heeft er de Heere ontvangen.

1. Mary was going to Bethlehem
on Christmas Eve in the morning;
St Joseph was with her,
keeping her company.

2. It hailed and snowed: the weather was foul;
there was frost on the roofs;
St Joseph said to Mary:
‘Mary, what shall we do?’

3. Mary said: ‘I am so tired,
let us rest for a while.’
- ‘Let us go a little further,
then we can rest in some kind of shelter.’

4. The little child wept on Mary's lap:
come, angels from above:
come, crown this virgin, it is high time
for she has received the Lord there.
