En la noche oscura
duerme el Niño
en la cuna
y la gran estrella
su faz bella

¡Dios de Dios!
¡Luz de Luz!
¡Rey de Reyes!
El Niño entre los bueyes (bis)

Con Su nacimiento
Dios nos quita el
y Su sacrificio
nos alcanza el


English.png English translation

In the dark night
the Child is sleeping in His cradle
and the big star lights up his beautiful face.
God of God! Light of Light! King of Kings!
The Child among the oxen.
By His birth, God removes from us the suffering
and by His sacrifice He bestowes upon us the Paradise.
