All the saints related to his birth are mentioned as well. The saints actually represent all the society classes – those who suffer, husbands, wives, children, bishops, popes… The song consists of 12 stanzas, but usually only the 1st, 2nd and 12th stanza are sung. Last two lines in the 1st stanza are repeated after each stanza.
