Los heraldos celestiales

Full Text

1 Los heraldos celestiales
Canta con sonora voz:
"¡Gloria el rey recißn nacido,
Que del cielo descendió!"
Paz, misericordia plena,
Franca reconciliación
Entre Deios, tan ultrajado,
Y el mortal que le ofendió.

2 La dvinidad sublime
En la carne se veló;
Ved a Dios morando en carne,
Y adorad al HombreDios.
Emmanule, Dios con nosotros,
A la tierra descendió;
Y heco hombre, con los hombres
Tiene ya su habitación.

3 ¡Salve, principe glorioso
De la paz y del perdón!
¡Salve a Ti que de justicia
Eres el divino sol!
Luz y vida respandecen
A tu grata aparición,
Y en tus blancas alas traes
La salud al pecador.

4 Naces manso, despojado
De tu glorai y esplendor,
Porque no maramos todos
En fatal condenación;
Naces para que ya el hombre
Tenga en Ti resurrección,
Naces para que renazca
A la vida e pecador.
