-  Transcription: Cielo soberano/sea más piedad,/que ya no sufremos/la nieve que cae,/que ya no sufremos/la nieve que cae./Sospenden delirios/cecen los quebrantos,/que ya están poblados/de nieve los campos,/que ya están poblados/de nieve los campos./Qué copos de nieve/caen sobre el ganado,/aunque sobre el valle/viven reclinados,/aunque sobre el valle/viven reclinados./Las estrellas vuelan/y luego se paran,/absortas se quedan/de ver tal nevada,/absortas se quedan/de ver tal nevada./Lástima de verlos/a los pobrecitos,/temblando de frío/se están paraditos,/temblando de fría/se están paraditos./Los llaman sus madres/y ellos se detienen,/por no dar un paso/sobre tanta nieve,/por no dar un paso/sobre tanta nieve.

-  Transcription: Sovereign Heaven/be more merciful,/that we no longer suffer/the snow that falls,/that we no longer suffer/the snow that falls./May rapture be suspended,/may afflictions cease,/already the snow/has covered the countryside,/already the snow/has covered the countryside./What flakes of snow/fall on the flocks, /though in the valley/they are lying down,/though in the valley/they are lying down./The stars fly/and then stand still,/they are amazed/to see such snowfall,/they are amazed /to see such snowfall./It hurts to see /the poor little lambs,/trembling from the cold,/they are huddled together,/trembling from the cold,/they are huddled together./Their mothers call them/and they stand still,/and cannot take a step/on so much snow, /and cannot take a step/on so much snow.
