CRUZ DE MAYO

By Lilia Vera
[For the chords for this song, see El Cuatro Venezolano.]

Vengo a cantarle a la Cruz de Mayo, desde los campos del otro lao'
Donde mi negro me da cerezas, y donde crece lindo el cacao.

I come to sing to the May Cross, from the fields on the other side
Where my friend gives me cherries, and where the cocoa grows beautifully.

Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola

Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola

Yo vengo a cantarte ahora, yo vengo a cantarte ahora,
Con la voz que Dios me puso.

I come to sing to you now, I come to sing to you now
With the voice that God gave me.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]

Con permiso a los presentes, con permiso a los presentes,
Y en especial las señoras.

With the permission of those present, with the permission of those present,
And especially the ladies.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]
Yo te pido Cruz bendita, yo te pido Cruz bendita,
Oye mi canto, mi ruego.

I ask of you blessed Cross, I ask of you blessed Cross
Hear my song, my prayer.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]

Yo te pido Cruz bendita, yo te pido Cruz bendita,
Que nos libres de la guerra.

 I ask of you blessed Cross, I ask of you blessed Cross
That you free us from war.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]

Y que le digas a Dios, y que le digas a Dios,
Que le de paz a la Tierra.

And that you say to God, and that you say to God
That He gives the earth peace.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]

Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Santísima Cruz de Mayo,
Oye mi canto, mi ruego.

Holy May Cross, holy May Cross
Hear my song, my prayer.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]

Que la lluvia bañe el campo, que la lluvia bañe el campo,
Y de sus frutos la Tierra.

That the rain bathes the field, that the rain bathes the fields
And the fruits of the land.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]

Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Santísima Cruz de Mayo,
Oye mi canto, mi ruego.

Holy May Cross, holy May Cross
Hear my song, my prayer.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]

Llena de flores mis campos, llena de flores mis campos,
Para adornar tus floreros.

My fields are full of flowers, my fields are full of flowers
To adorn your vases.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]

Yo vengo a cantarte ahora, yo vengo a cantarte ahora,
Con la voz que Dios me puso.

I come to sing to you now, I come to sing to you now
With the voice that God gave me.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo, Olero lei leilola]
[Olero lei leilola, Holy May Cross, Olero lei leilola]

Con permiso a los presentes, con permiso a los presentes,
Y en especial las señoras.

With the permission of those present, with the permission of those present
And especially the ladies.

[Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo,
Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo,
Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo,
Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo,
Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo,
Olero lei leilola, Santísima Cruz de Mayo,
Olero lei leilola.]

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, Lilia Vera. I know that Cruz De Mayo is months away but I came across this song on one of my favourite blogs - El Cuatro Venezolano, and loved it.

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
Guanaguanare
