by Marià Manent (1898 - 1988)

Cançoneta humil de mitjanit
Language: Catalan (Català) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Maria, roser florit 
dins el cor de la tenebra. 
De la branca de David 
floria una rosa vera. 

Volem adorar l’Infant, 
tremolós com una estrella, 
i veure aquell bou pesant 
i sentir un belar d’anyella. 

Ja som tots aquí, Senyor, 
i els morts ens fan companyia. 
Ens aclara la claror 
que surt de vostra establia. 

I en la fredor de la nit 
el dolç Infant que somica 
reposarà en nostre pit 
i el bressarem una mica.
