Astro el más bello en la regia cohorte

Full Text

1 Astro el más bello en la regia cohorte,
Suave, argentina, miramos tu luz;
Haznos visible el lejano horizonte;
Guíanos al lecho del niño Jesús.

2 Vedlo dormido, por cuna un pesebre;
quiso entre pobres, homilde nacer;
Ángeles ven en aquel niño endeble,
Al que dispone de todo poder.

3 ¿Qué traeremos? ¿La mirra más fina
¿Ricos aromas del último mar?
¿Oro sacado de todas las minas?
¿Cómo la fe en Él podemos mostrar?

4 Vamos serían tan ricos presntes:
Ellos no pueden su gracia alcanzar;
Muéevenle aquellos que llevan fervientes
Preces del alma, que puede aceptar.

Author: Reginald Heber

Reginald Heber was born in 1783 into a wealthy, educated family. He was a bright youth, translating a Latin classic into English verse by the time he was seven, entering Oxford at 17, and winning two awards for his poetry during his time there. After his graduation he became rector of his father's church in the village of Hodnet near Shrewsbury in the west of England where he remained for 16 years. He was appointed Bishop of Calcutta in 1823 and worked tirelessly for three years until the weather and travel took its toll on his health and he died of a stroke. Most of his 57 hymns, which include "Holy, Holy, Holy," are still in use today. -- Greg Scheer, 1995… Go to person page >
