Oid un son en alta esfera

Full Text

1 Oid un son en alta esfena:
"¡En los cielo gloria a Dios,
Y al mortal paz en la teirra!"
Canta la celeste voz.
Con los ciels alabemos
Al eterno rey; cantemos
A Jesús que est nuestro bien,
Con el coro de Belén.
Canta la celeste voz:
"¡En los cielos gloria a Dios!"

2 El Señor de los señores,
El ungigo celestial,
A salvar los pecadores
Vino al seno virginal.
¡Gloria al Verbo encarnado,
En humanidad velado!
¡Gloria al santo de Israel
Cuyo nombre es Emmanuel!
Canta la celeste voz:
"¡En los cielos gloria a Dios!"

3 3 Principe de paz eterna,
¡Gloria a Ti, Señor Jesús!
Entregando el alma tierna,
Tú nos raes viad y luz.
Has tu majestad dejado,
Y buscarnos te has dignado;
Para darnos el vivir,
A la muerte quieres ir.
Canta la celeste voz:
"¡En los cielos gloria a Dios!"
