Cantan ángeles mil, brilla estrella de paz

Representative Text

1 Cantan ángeles mil, brilla estrella de paz;
Virgen madre en amor, vela al Hijo de Dios.
Todo el cielo en júbilo canta loor;
Ha nacido en Belén nuestro Rey y Señor.

2 Hay un gozo sin par por el don de su amor,
Pues el tierno bebé es del mundo Señor.
Todo el cielo en júbilo canta loor;
Ha nacido en Belén nuestro Rey y Señor.

3 El sublime fulgor es del mundo la luz,
Y resuena este son alabando a Jesús.
Nuestras almas se inflaman y cantan loor;
Ha nacido en Belén nuestro Rey y Señor.

4 Grande gozo nos da esta luz celestial;
Canta hoy nuestra voz himno angelical.
Proclamamos alegres su eterno amor,
Y adoramos al Niño, al Rey y Señor.
