    'Rin del angelito' by Violeta Parra.

    Apparently, it's a popular song in children's funerals. Read more about it here:

    Ya se va para los cielos ese querido angelito

    There goes to heaven, that dear angel

    a rogar por sus abuelos, por sus padres y hermanitos

    To pray for his grandparents, parents and siblings

    cuando se muere la carne el alma busca su sitio

    When the flesh dies the soul searches for a place

    adentro de una amapola o dentro de un pajarito.

    inside a poppy flower or a bird

    La tierra lo está esperando con su corazón abierto

    The earth is waiting with it's open heart

    por eso es que el angelito parece que está despierto

    That why it seems that the little angel is awake

    cuando se muere la carne el alma busca su centro

    when the flesh dies the soul searches for it's center

    en el brillo de una rosa o de un pecesito nuevo.

    inside the rose's gloom or a new fish

    En su cunita de tierra lo arrullará una campana

    In his dirt cradle a bell will lull him

    mientras la lluvia le límpia su carita en la mañana

    While the rain will wash his face in the morning

    cuando se muere la carne el alma busca su diana

    when the flesh dies the soul searches for it's reveille

    en el misterio del mundo que le ha abierto su ventana.

    In the world's mystery that has opened it's window

    Las mariposas alegres de ver el bello angelito

    T he butterflies are happy watching the little angel

    alrededor de su cuna le caminan despacito

    Around his cradle they walk slowly

    cuando se muere la carne el alma va derechito

    when the flesh dies the soul goes directly

    a saludar a la luna y de paso al lucerito.

    to greet the moon and the morning star
