“Por el valle de rosas” (Through the Valley of the Roses)
Daniel Montenegro
Music and Lyrics by Miguel Bernal Jiménez

 

Through the valley of roses
Of your cheeks
Run two little streams
Of tears

Let me try, let me
Let me try, let me
Quench their thirst
That so torments me.

Sleep my Jesus
Sleep in my arms
And don’t cry, don’t cry
For my sins

Fall asleep, sleep
Fall asleep, sleep
And even if you feel me cry
Don’t wake up …

Translation by Daniel Montenegro
