Noche de paz, noche de amor

Representative Text

1 ¡Noche de paz, noche de amor!
Todo dureme en derredor.
Entre los astros que esparcen su luz,
Bella anunciando al niñito Jesús
Brilla la estrella de paz,
Brilla la estrella de paz.

2 ¡Noche de paz, noche de amor!
Oye humilde el fiel pastor
Coros celestes que anuncian salud,
Gracias y glorias en gran plenitud,
Por nuestro buen Redentor,
Por nuestro buen Redentor.

3 ¡Noche de paz, noche de amor!
Ved qué bello resplandor
Luce en el rostor del niño Jesús
En el pesebre, del mundo la luz,
Astro de eterno fulgor,
Astro de eterno fulgor.
