Estas son las mañanitas, que cantaba el Rey David,
Hoy por ser día de tu santo, te las cantamos a ti,
Despierta, mi bien, despierta, mira que ya amaneció,
Ya los pajarillos cantan, la luna ya se metió.

Que linda está la mañana en que vengo a saludarte,
Venimos todos con gusto y placer a felicitarte,
Ya viene amaneciendo, ya la luz del día nos dio,
Levántate de mañana, mira que ya amaneció.

These are the songs that David sang.
Today because it is the day of your saint, we sing them to you.
Wake up my dear, wake up, see the day has dawned.
The birds sing, the moon has set.

How lovely is the morning in which I come to greet you,
We all come with joy and pleasure to congratulate you,
The dawn has come, the light of day is given to us.
Get up with the morning and see that it has dawned.
