Dad loor a Dios

Representative Text

1 Jesucristo descendió
De los cieloas a Belén;
Nuestra paz allí nació,
Nuestra dicha, luz y bien.

2 Ha nacido en el mesón
el ungido celstial,
En humilde condieción,
Hecho misero mortal.

3 Por venir a padecer
A los ángeles dejó,
Y nacido de mujer,
Con los hombres habitó.

4 Himnos mil a Dios cantad
Por Jesús, el Salvador,
Alabando su bonda;
Sí, cantad su gran amor.
