Oh niños, venid

Representative Text

1 Oh, niños de todos los pueblos venid;
los cantos de ángeles miles oíd.
En un pueblecito, llamado Belén,
el Hijo de Dios ha nacido recién.

2 Mirad sobre el heno al niño Jesús;
le adoran pastores que han visto gran luz;
Brillando en el cielo con gran claridad,
señal fue que Dios ama al mundo en verdad.

3 Los magos de oriente le ofrecen loor;
proclaman los ángeles gloria al Señor.
José y María le adoran también;
oh niños cantad a Jesús de Belén.

4 Oh, niños de todos los pueblos venid;
con huestes celestes la nueva esparcid.
Felices, unid vuestras voces de amor;
alegre anunciad que nació el Salvador.
