¡O qué nueva, o gran bien!
Da nos d’esse bien aviso
que está hecho parayso
el pesebre de Belén
¡Quién pensó que un pesebruelo
donde un flaco buey comía
un rato fuese tan çielo
como el vientre de María!

¡Alegría, o gran bien!
Da nos…

O great news, oh great thing!
Give us this prized news, so
Jesus was born in a great-heaven crib.
Who think that a little trough,
where ate a skinny ox,
was as beautiful as the Virgin belly?

Happiness, oh great thing!
Give us…

O quelle nouvelle, o quelle chose!
Donne nous ces nouvelles.
Le crèche de Jesus est un paradis
parce qu'il est né là.

Qui pensait qu'un mangeoire vieux,
où un boeuf mangeait,
un moment serait autant jolie que
le ventre de la Vierge?

O quelle joie, o quelle chose!
Donne nous…
