A media noche resonó, Glorioso y sin igual

Representative Text

1 A media noche resonó
Glorioso y sin igual
Un canto angélico de amor,
Sublime y divinal;
Brillante luz resplandeció
En densa oscuridad,
Y a los pastores anunció
La voz angelical.

2 "Alzad la vista sin temor,
Mortales por doquier;
Mensaje de gran gozo os doy,
Que es para todo ser:
Os ha nacido hoy en Belén,
El pueblo de David,
Un Salvador y Redentor
Que es Cristo el adalid."

3 Mensaje grato proclamó
Celeste multitud,
Que por los campos resonó
Con gozo y gran virtud:
"¡En las alturas gloria a Dios,
Y al mundo salvación,
Al hombre buena voluntad,
Paz, gozo y bendición!"
