    After the Anglican Communion collapses under the weight of its own degeneracy I predict the dominant form of Christianity in Britain will be Catholicism.

    "Prepare yourself, O Grotto, for the Ewe is coming, carrying Christ in her womb,
    O Manger, receive Him who released us earthlings from irrational activity by His word.
    You shepherds watching by night, witness to the awesome wonder.
    And you Magi from Persia, offer gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the King.
    For the Lord has appeared from a virgin Mother.
    And bending over Him, the Mother, as servant, worshiped Him, and addressed the Infant in her arms,
    "How were You sown in me, and how were You implanted in me, O my Redeemer and my God?" "

    Riu, Riu, Chiu is a song that dates around the 1500's Spain. The title is supposed to represent the call of a nightingale or the predatory call of a kingfisher. This song is about the Immaculate Conception.

    Riu, riu, chiu
    la guarda ribera /
    Dios guardó el lobo
    de nuestra cordera /
    Dios guardó el lobo
    de nuestra cordera.

    El lobo rabioso
    la quiso morder /
    Mas Dios Poderoso
    la supo defender /
    Quizo la hacer que
    no pudiese pecar /
    Ni aun original
    esta virgen no tuviera.

    Riu, riu, chiu...

    Este que es nascido
    es El Gran Monarca /
    Cristo Patriarca
    de carne vestido /
    Ha nos redimido
    con se hacer chiquito /
    Aunque era infinito
    finito se hiciera.

    Riu, riu, chiu ...

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

    Riu, riu, chiu ...

    Yo vi mil Garzones
    que andavan cantando /
    Por aqui volando
    haciendo mil sones /
    Diciendo a gascones
    Gloria sea en el Cielo /
    Y paz en el suelo
    pues Jesus nasciera.

    Riu, riu, chiu ...

    Pues que ya tenemos
    lo que deseamos /
    Todos juntos vamos
    presentes llevemos /
    Todos le daremos
    nuestra voluntad /
    Pues a se igualar
    con nosotros viniera.

    Riu, riu, chiu ...

    English Translation
    Riu, riu, chiu
    The river bank is protected
    God has kept the wolf
    From our ewe lamb
    God has kept the wolf
    From our ewe lamb

    The rabid wolf
    Wanted to bite her
    But Almighty God
    Knew how to defend her
    He willed to make her
    Unable to sin
    Even original sin
    This virgin did not have

    Riu, riu, chiu...

    The one who is born
    Is the Great Monarch
    Christ the Patriarch
    Clothed in flesh
    He has redeemed us
    By making himself small
    Though he was infinite
    He became finite

    Riu, riu, chiu...

    He comes to give
    Life to the dead
    He comes to repair
    The fall of all mankind
    This Child
    Is the light of day
    He is the Lamb
    Of whom St. John spoke

    Riu, riu, chiu...

    I saw a thousand Angels
    Who were singing
    Flying around
    Chanting in a thousand voices
    Saying to the shepherds
    Glory in Heaven
    And peace on earth
    For Jesus is born

    Riu, riu, chiu...

    Now we have
    What we desire
    Let us go together
    To present him gifts
    Let us all give him
    Our will
    For he came
    As our equal

    Riu, riu, chiu...

    Christmas music to Deus Vult by. Not technically Christmas music, but is a Crusade song about the Gospel.
