Lyrics

(letra en español)

1. A la ru ru ru niño chiquito,
Duérmase ya mi Jesusito.
Cada animal y pájaro
Tiernamente guarda el bebé querido.

2. A la ru ru ru niño chiquito,
Duérmase ya mi Jesusito.
Del elefante hasta el mosquito,
Guarden silencio, no le hagan ruido.

3. A la ru ru ru niño chiquito,
Duérmase ya mi Jesusito.
Noche venturosa, noche de alegria.
Bendita la dulce, divina Maris.

4. A la ru ru ru niño chiquito,
Duérmase ya mi Jesusito.
Coros celestiales, con su dulce accento,
Canten la ventura este nacimiento.

English Version of Lyrics

1. A la rururu, My lovely Jesus,
In sweetest slumber now rest, my dearest.
Sleep my little Jesus, every animal and bird
Tenderly guard the loved baby.

2. A la rururu, My lovely Jesus,
In sweetest slumber now rest, my dearest.
You elephant so huge, you small mosquito,
Be very still, you must not wake the Niño.

3. A la rururu, My lovely Jesus,
In sweetest slumber now rest, my dearest.
O night of glory, night of jubilation,
So richly blest by Mary, Queen of Heaven.

4. A la rururu, My lovely Jesus,
In sweetest slumber now rest, my dearest.
Such heav’nly voices in sweet accents singing,
The glorious tidings of His birth are bringing!
