    Default Need Spanish for Zaccheus

    We're going to Nicaragua next month and want to present the Bible story of Zaccheus from Luke 19:1-10. In the United States we have a children's song about Zaccheus. I wonder if anyone has translated it into Spanish or could. The lyrics are:
    Zaccheus was a wee little man
    A wee little man was he
    He climbed up in a sycamore tree
    For the Lord he wanted to see
    And as the master walked his way
    He looked up in the tree
    And he said, "Zaccheus, you come down!
    For I'm going to your house today.
    For I'm going to your house today.

    My son and his family happen to be missionaries in Nicaragua and, over the years, I have translated many familiar Bible songs for children into Spanish for the grandchildren. Zacchaeus happens to be one which I have translated. Following is my take on the Zacchaeus song. However, my Spanish is self-taught, so my take on this song could be considered to be a little rough around the edges by scholars.

    Sincerely, Deborah J. Reyes

    Zaqueo era un hombre pequeño, poco
    y un hombre de baja estatura, poco se fue.
    Se subió a un árbol sicómoro.
    para que el Señor quería ver.

    Y como el Salvador pasó por allí,
    Miró hacia arriba en el árbol!
    Y dijo:
    Zaqueo, que bajar de allí!
    Porque yo voy a tu casa.
    Porque yo voy a su casa hoy!

    Y Zaqueo bajó de ese árbol!
    Y él dijo:
    Lo que un hombre mejor que se.
    Voy a dar mi dinero a los pobres.
    Lo que un hombre mejor que se.
    Lo que un hombre mejor que se.
