#5minPraycation “Los Reyes Magos” by Mercedes Sosa

For whom, for what, for where are you praying today?

Los Reyes Magos

They had arrived, the kings, and there were three:
Melchior, Caspar and the black Balthasar.
Syrup and honey they will bring him
And a white poncho of royal alpaca.

Fall asleep little boys and girls
So that Melchior, Caspar and Balthasar
Can leave out all the gifts
For you to play with when you wake up

The God Child was really pleased.
He ate the honey and wrapped himself in the poncho.
And afterwards he saw them
And the sun shone at midnight.
