Spanish.png Spanish text

Pastor, quien madre virgin ha mirado
si no se torna loco
bien se puede jurar que siente poco
y ser hombre mortal Dios soberano
no cabe en seso humano
pues yo me torno loco
porque no digas tú que siento poco.

Shepherd, you who have seen a Virgin mother,
if you are not out of your mind,
one would think you were senseless.
And that the most High God is a mortal man
cannot be grasped by the human brain;
I must be out of my mind
because you are not saying that I am senseless.
