Allá en el pesebre

Representative Text

1 Allá en el pesebre, do nace Jesús,
La cuna de paja nos vierte gran luz;
Estrellas lejanas del cielo al mirar,
Se inclinan gozosas su lumbre a prestar.

2 Pastores del campo, teniendo temor,
Cercados de luz y de gran resplandor,

Nacido en pesebre, del mundo la luz.

3 Oh Cristo, perdimos hoy tu bendición,
Rogamos que atiendas a nuestra oración;
A todos, oh Cristo, nos muestras amor,
Nosotros te amamos también, Salvador.
