O menino está dormindo
Nas palhinhas despidinho (x2)
Os anjos lh´estão cantando
Por amor tão pobrezinho (x2)

O menino está dormindo
Nos braços da virgem pura (x2)
Os anjos lh´estão cantando
Hossana lá na altura (x2)

O menino está dormindo
Nos braços de São José (x2)
Os anjos lh´estão cantando
Gloria tibi Domine (x2)

O menino está dormindo
Um sono de amor profundo (x2)
Os anjos lh´estão cantando
Viva o Salvador do Mundo (x2)

“O menino está dormindo” Teaching ideas

“O menino está dormindo”, the little boy is sleeping!

Sing the song twice: the first one happy and rather loudly. The second one (after the short “break” , as the Singing-Bell orchestration proposes) try to sing more gently not to disturb the baby. If you are at home, or in class and rather tired, you can make your voice even more quiet  at the last verses and relax after the song, keeping some minutes of silence.
