Venid, fieles todos, A Belén vayamos

Representative Text

1 Venid, fieles todos, a Belén marchemos
de gozo triunfantes, y llenos de amor;
Y al Rey de los cielos contemplar podremos;

Venid, adoremos, venid, adoremos,
venid, adoremos a Cristo el Señor.

2 El que es Hijo eterno del eterno Padre,
y Dios verdadero que al mundo creó,
al seno virgíneo nació de una madre; [Estribillo]

3 En pobre pesebre yace reclinado,
al mundo ofreciendo eternal salvación,
el santo Mesías, verbo humanado; [Estribillo]

4 Cantad jubilosas, célicas criaturas;
resuenen los cielos con vuestra canción:
¡Al Dios bondadoso, gloria en las alturas; [Estribillo]

5 Jesús, celebramos tu bendito nombre
con himnos solemnes de grato loor;
por siglos eternos todo ser te adore; [Estribillo]
