Riu, riu, chiu

La guarda ribera

Dios guarde el lobo

De nuestra cordera.

El lobo rabioso la quiso morder,

Mas Dios poderoso la supo defender;

Quisole hazer que no pudiesse pecar,

Ni aun original esta Virgen no tuviera.

Riu, riu, chiu, etc.

Este qu'es nascido es el gran monarca,

Cristo patriarca de carne vestido;

Hanos redimido con se hazer chiquito,

Aunqu'era infinito, finito se hizera.

Riu, riu, chiu, etc.

Muchas profecias lo han profetizado,

Y aun en nuestros dias lo hemos alcancado.

A Dios humanado vemos en el suelo

Y al hombre nel cielo porqu'er le quisiera.

Riu, riu, chiu, etc.

Yo vi mil Garzones que andavan cantando,

Por aqui bolando, haciendo mil sones,

Diziendo a gascones Gloria sea en el cielo,

Y paz en el suelo qu'es Jesus nascieta.

Riu, riu, chiu, etc.

Este viene a dar a los muertos vida

Y viene a reparar de todos la caida;

Es la luz del dia aqueste mocuelo;

Este es el cordero que San Juan dixera.

Riu, riu, chiu, etc.

Pues que ya tenemos lo que desseamos,
Todos juntos vamos presentes llevemos;
Todos le daremos nuestra voluntad,
Pues a se igualar con el hombre viniera.

Riu, riu, chiu, etc
