Siente el alma puros goces

Full Text

1 Siente el alma puros goces,
Al oir
Celestiales voces;
"¡La salud os ha venido!"
Oíd cantar
"¡Cristo ha nacido!"

2 Oíd la voz del tierno niño
al mortal
Dice con cariño:
"¡Los dolores deja, hermano,
A Miven,
Que tu bien
Todo está en mi mano!"

3 ¡Vamos llenos de contento,
Cin tardar
A admirar
El sin par portento!
A Él amemos, que nos ama;
Y su amor,
El fulgor
De su estrella aclama.
