Dadme Albricias, Hijos d'Eva

Spanish Christmas Carol

Dadme albricias, hijos d'Eva! (Sons of Eve, Bring Me Glad Tidings!) is another lively Spanish villancicos Christmas song, like Riu, Riu, Chiu. This carol came from the little people and reflects their simple and exhuberant joy at the coming of Christ. It is typically sung in four voices, showing the authentic musical skill of the people.

 Watch the chorus perform it here

 

Dadme albricias, hijos d'Eva!
Di de qué dartelas han?
Que es nascido el nuevo Adan.
Oh hy de Dios y que nueva!

Dadmelas y haved placer
Pues esta noche es nascido,
El Mexias prometido,
Dios y hombre, de mujer.

Y su nascer nos releva
Del pecado y de su afan
Que es nascido el nuevo Adan.
 Oh hy de Dios, y que nueva!
Sons of Eve, give me glad tidings.
Why should we give them to you?
Born is He, the new Adam.
Almighty God, what glad tidings!

Pay my boon, and sing for joy,
For tonight is born our Savior,
The Messiah promised to us
Man and God, a Virgin's boy

By His birth, He gives us pardon
For the sin and wrong we do.
Born is He, the new Adam.
Almighty God, what glad tidings!
