A La Puerta del Cielo

This is a precious, heartfelt lullaby. Originally from Mexico, it is now sung all over the world. Learn more here.



A la puerta del cielo
Venden zapatos
Para los angelitos
Que andan descalzos

Duérmete niño
Duérmete niño
Duérmete niño
Arrú arrú

A los niños que duermen
Dios los bendice
A las madres que velan
Dios las asiste

Duérmete niño
Duérmete niño
Duérmete niño
Arrú arrú
English:
At the gates of heaven,
They sell shoes
For the little angels
That go barefoot.

Sleep baby,
Sleep baby,
Sleep baby,
Hush-a-bye now.

The children who sleep,
God bless them.
The mothers who watch,
God helps them.

Sleep baby,
Sleep baby,
Sleep baby,
Hush-a-bye now.
