Venid, pastorcillos

Representative Text

1 Venid, pastorcillos, venid a adorar
Al rey de los cielos que nace en Judá.
Sin ricas ofrendas podemos llegar,
Que el niño prefiere la fe y la bondad.

2 Un rústico techo a brigo le da,
Por cuna un pesebre, por templo un portal;
En lecho de pajas de incógnito está
Quien quiso a los astros su gloria prestar.

3 Hermoso lucero le vino a anunciar,
Y magos de Oriente buscándole van:
Delante se postran del rey de Judá,
De incienso, oro y mirra tributo le dan.
