Falade ben baixo petade pouquino,
Pra que no deperte o noso rollino,
Ay, mina xoya, meo queridino,
Eu ben quisiera darche agorino,
Terte no collo, acochadino.
Mina xoya, meu rapaz, Mina xoya, como estas?
Que es tas tembrando de frio,
Ay, que lastima me das;
Que estas tembrando do de frio,
Aye, que lastima me das.

We'll speak very softly and lower our voices
Before the dear Savior in whom Heaven rejoices.
O my beloved, could I but hold Thee,
How great my joy, how great my joy!
How great Thy blessing, falling upon me!
My beloved, my heart's one delight,
My dear baby Jesus, How are you?
From the cold I see you shiv'ring,
And it grieves me through and through:
From the cold I see you shiv'ring,
And it grieves me through and through.
