Kantas anĝelara ĥor'

Full Text

1. Kantas anĝelara ĥor'
"Inter homoj Di-favor'!:
Paco venas al la ter',
Por pekuloj nov-esper'!

2. Tial ĝoju tut-homar'
Per triumfa laŭd-kantar',
Sonas la anĝela kri':
"Jen naskiĝis Krist' por vi".

3. Estu do al li ador',
De eterne la Sinjor';
Ĉar la Sankta Virgulin'
En la mondon naskis lin;

4. Jen por ni homiĝis Di',
Enkarniĝis la Mesi'!
Venis li — Emanuel',
Al la tero el ĉiel'.

5. Jen la Princ' de Paco nun,
De Justeco vera Sun',
Lumon, sanon, portas li
Al homaro tie ĉi;

6. Sian gloron cedis Li,
Ke sin montru am' de Di',
Renaskiĝon donas li,
Por ke ĉiam vivu ni.
