Below are the translated lyrics:

A baby, hovering in heaven before coming to earth, asks God:

“They told me that you’re sending me to earth tomorrow, but how will I be able to live there, as I’m so small and defenseless?”

God: “Among all the angels, I chose one especially for you.  Your angel will wait for you and will take care of you!”

The child asks again: “But tell me, here in heaven, I don’t have to do anything but sing and laugh to be happy…”

God says: “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day.  You will feel your angel’s love for you, and you will be very happy”.

The child asks: “How will I be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t understand heir language?”

God says: “Your angel will speak to you the most beautiful and tender words you’ve ever heard before and with patience and care, your angel will teach you how to talk.”

The child: “And what should I do when I would like to talk with you?”

God:  “Your angel will put your hands together and will show you how to pray.”

The child: “I’ve heard that on earth, there are mean men.  Who will protect me?”

God: “Your angel will defend you, even at the risk of her own life.”

The child: “But I will be sad to not be able to see you anymore!”

God: “Your angel will talk to you about me and will show you how to come into my presence.  And, I will always be there, beside you.”

At that moment it was very quiet in heaven, but voices from earth could be heard and the child asked, “God, if I must leave now, please tell me, what is the name of my angel?”

GOD:  “Your angel is named “mama”.

“What is the name of my angel?
Your angel’s name is “mama”.
