Soy un pobre pastorcito

Representative Text

1 Soy un pobre pastorcito
que camina hacia Belén.
Voy buscando al que ha nacido,
Dios con nosotros, Manuel.

Caminando camina ligero,
no te canses, no, de caminar;
que te esperan José y Maria
con el niño en el portal.

2 Aunque pobre, yo le llevo
un blanquísimo vellón,
para que le haga su madre
un cotoncito querendón. [Estribillo]

3 Guardadito aquí en el pecho,
yo le llevo el mejor don;
al niñito que ha nacido
le llevo mi corazón. [Estribillo]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
