A la nanita nana, nanita ea, nanita ea
Mi Jesus tiene sueño, bendito sea, bendito sea.
Little brook overflowing
Rushing and ringing,
Nightingale in the torest,
Sighing and singing.
Quiet now while the cradle
Softly enfolds him.
A la nanita nana, nanita ea.

Y tu trite presagio que me ronturas
Almácigo de penas y de amarguras
Huye mientras la cuna se balancea.
A la nanita nana, nanita ea.

I know not to explain it
Sorrow has vanished.
Oh thy smile, little Jesus,
My care has banished.
Dream, dream, o gentle Master
Dreams without number.
A la nanita nana, nanita ea.
