Riu, riu, chiu
La guarda rivera
Dios guarda el lobo
De nuestra cordera

Riu, riu, chiu

El lobo rabioso la quiso morder
Mas Dios poderoso la supo defender
Quisole hacer que no pudiese pecar
Ni aun original la Virgen no tuviera

Riu, riu, chiu
La guarda rivera

Este viene a dar a los muertos vida
Y viene a reparar de todos la caida
Es la luz del dia aqueste mochuelo
Este es el cordero que San Juan dijera

Riu, riu, chiu
Guarda rivera

Este qu'es nacido es el gran monarca
Cristo patriarca de carne vestido
Hemos redimido con se hacer chiquito
Aunqu'era infinito, finito se hiciera

Riu, riu, chiu
La guarda rivera

    "riu riu chiu" (these 3 words) portray the sounds of a nightingale. The rest of the song is basically asking god to polyphase them from evil and the wolf.
