Songs for Las Posadas

This post is also available in: Español

Outside the house (Travelers):

In heaven’s name,
I ask for shelter,
For she cannot walk,
My beloved wife.
Inside the house (Inhabitant):
This place is no inn,
Continue on your way,
I cannot open the door,
I fear you may be a thief.
Outside the house (Travelers):
Don’t be so inhumane,
Give us charity,
For it is God in the heavens,
That will award you for it.
Inside the house (Inhabitant):
You can go now,
And bother (us) no more,
Because if I become angry
I will surely beat you.
Outside the house (Travelers):
We come exhausted,
From Nazareth,
I’m a carpenter,
By the name of Joseph.
Inside the house (Inhabitant):
I don’t care for your name
Let me sleep
Because I’ve already told you,
I will not open.
Outside the house (Travelers):
She asks you for shelter,
Dear inhabitant,
Just for one night,
The queen in the heavens.
Inside the house (Inhabitant):
Well, if she is a queen,
Who solicits this from us,
How is it that by night,
She wanders all alone?
Outside the house (Travelers):
My wife is Mary,
She is Queen of the heavens,
And she will be the mother,
Of the divine word.
Inside the house (Inhabitant):
Are you Joseph?
Is your wife Mary?
Come in travelers,
I didn’t recognize you.
Outside the house (Travelers):
May God repay you sirs,
For your kindness,
And may heaven shower you,
With happiness.
EVERYONE:
What a joyful home
That harbors us this day,
The pure virgin,
Beautiful Mary.
Come in sacred travelers, travelers
Come, take this corner,
Although this dwelling is poor, this dwelling
We offer with our hearts.
Let’s sing with joy, joy
Everyone, as we consider
That Jesus, Joseph and Mary, and Mary
Have come today to honor us.

 

Campanas de Belen

Campana sobre campana (English)

Bethlehem, bells of Bethlehem
That the angels ring
What news do you bring me?

(Chorus)
Bethlehem, bells of Bethlehem
That the angels ring
What news do you bring me?

Your flock is gathered,
Where are you going little shepherd?
I’m going to the stable to bring
Cottage cheese, lard and wine.

(Chorus)

Bell after bell,
And after bell, two!
Lean out that window
God is being born.

(Chorus)

Walking at midnight,
Where are you going shepherd?
To the Child who’s being born,
As to God, I’m bringing my heart.

(Chorus)

Mi Burrito Sabanero

My little donkey

With my little donkey I go way to Bethlehem
With my little donkey I go way to Bethlehem
If they see me, if they see me
I go way to Bethlehem

The bright morning star illuminates my footpath
The bright morning star illuminates my footpath
If they see me, if they see me
I go way to Bethlehem

With my little donkey I go singing,
my little donkey goes trotting
With my little donkey I go singing,
my little donkey goes trotting
If they see me, if they see me
I go way to Bethlehem

tuki tuki tukituki
tuki tuki tukita
Hurry up my little donkey
that we are already going to arrive

tuki tuki tukituki
tuki tuki tukitu
Hurry up my little donkey
lets go to see Jesus

With my little donkey I go way to Bethlehem
With my little donkey I go way to Bethlehem
If they see me, if they see me
I go way to Bethlehem

The bright morning star illuminates my footpath
The bright morning star illuminates my footpath
If they see me, if they see me
I go way to Bethlehem

With my little donkey I go singing,
my little donkey goes trotting
With my little donkey I go singing,
my little donkey goes trotting
If they see me, if they see me
I go way to Bethlehem

tuki tuki tukituki
tuki tuki tukita
Hurry up my little donkey
that we are already going to arrive

tuki tuki tukituki
tuki tuki tukitu
Hurry up my little donkey
lets go to see Jesus

With my little donkey,
I go way to Bethlehem
With my little donkey,
I go way to Bethlehem
If they see me, if they see me
I go way to Bethlehem

If they see me, if they see me,
I go way to Bethlehem…
