Noche de paz, noche de amor

Representative Text

1 Noche de paz, noche de amor.
Todo duerme en derredor.
Entre los astros que esparcen su luz,
bella anunciando al niñito Jesús,

Oye humilde, fiel pastor:
coros celestes proclaman salud,
gracias y glorias en gran plenitud,
por nuestro buen Redentor,

3 Noche de paz, noche de amor.
Ved qué bello resplandor
Luce en el rostro del niño Jesús,
en el pesebre, del mundo la Luz;
astro de eterno fulgor,
astro de eterno fulgor.
