Los magos que llegaron a Belén

Representative Text

1 From a distant home the Savior we come seeking,
using as our guide the star so brightly beaming.

Lovely eastern star that tells us of God's morning,
heaven's wondrous light, O never cease thy shining!
Glory in the highest to the Son of Heaven,
and upon the earth be peace and love to all.

2 Glowing gold I bring the new-born babe so holy,
token of his power to reign above in glory. [Refrain]

3 Frankincense I bring the child of God's own choosing,
token of our prayers to heaven ever rising. [Refrain]

4 Bitter myrrh have I to give the infant Jesus,
token of the pain that he will bear to save us. [Refrain]

1 De tierra lejana venimos a verte,
nos sirve de guia la estrella de Oriente.

Oh brillante estrella que anuncias la aurora
no nos falte nunca tu luz bienhechora.
Gloria en las alturas al Hijo de Dios,
Gloria en las alturas y en la tierra amore.

2 Al recién nacido que es Rey de los reyes,
oro le regalo para ornar sus sienes. [Estribrillo]

3 Como es Dios el Niño le regalo incienso,
perfume con alma que sube hasta el cielo. [Estribrillo]

4 Al Niño del cielo que bajo a la tierra,
le regalo mirra que inspira tristeza. [Estribrillo]
