En Belén Tocan a Fuego Printable Lyrics – PDF

Carol, Spain.

This popular Spanish carol by an anonymous author is believed to come from Castilla y León.

En Belén tocan a fuego refers to the birth of Jesus – a fact so extraordinary that the bells in Bethlehem “sound as for a fire“. That is, the custom that used to exist to ring the bells to warn of fire in villages. It is a carol with perhaps a more solemn touch than others, since it is usually performed by a choir.

Lyrics (Spanish)

En Belén tocan a fuego,
del Portal salen las llamas,
porque dicen que ha nacido
el Redentor de las almas.

Brincan y bailan los peces en el río,
brincan y bailan por ver a Dios nacido.
Brincan y bailan los peces en el agua,
brincan y bailan de ver nacida el alba.

En el Portal de Belén
nació un clavel encarnado,
que por redimir al mundo
se ha vuelto lirio morado.

Brincan y bailan los peces en el río,
brincan y bailan por ver a Dios nacido.
Brincan y bailan los peces en el agua,
brincan y bailan de ver nacida el alba.

Los pastores en Belén
llevaban haces de leña,
para calentar al niño
que ha nacido en Nochebuena.

Brincan y bailan los peces en el río,
brincan y bailan por ver a Dios nacido.
Brincan y bailan los peces en el agua,
brincan y bailan de ver nacida el alba.

 

English translation

In Bethlehem they ring the bells as if on fire,
Flames come out of the Portal,
because they say that he was born
the Redeemer of souls.

The fish jump and dance in the river,
They jump and dance to see God born.
The fish jump and dance in the water,
They jump and dance to see the dawn rise.

In the Portal of Bethlehem
a red carnation was born*,
that to redeem the world
has turned purple lily.

The fish jump and dance in the river,
They jump and dance to see God born.
The fish jump and dance in the water,
They jump and dance to see the dawn rise.

The shepherds in Bethlehem
they carried bundles of firewood,
to warm the child
who was born on Christmas Eve.

The fish jump and dance in the river,
They jump and dance to see God born.
The fish jump and dance in the water,
They jump and dance to see the dawn rise.

 

*expressing He was born healthy and strong
