Representative Text

1 Jesús de los cielos
Al mundo bajó,
En busca de joyas
Que amate compró.

Los niños salvados
Serán como el sol,
Brillando en la gloria
Del rey Salvador.

2 Su hermosa diadema
De eterno esplendor,
La adornan las joyas
Que amante compró. [Coro]

3 Los niños y niñas
Que van al Señor,

Que amante compró. [Coro]

4 Venid, pues, alegres
Al buen Redentor:
Él quiere las joyas
Que amante compró. [Coro]
