Lyrics to O Little Town of Bethlehem in Spanish

Click here to skip to English lyrics

Oh pueblecito de Belén,

Cuán quieto tú estás.

Los astros en silencio dan

Su bella luz en paz.

Mas en tus calles brilla

La luz de redención

Que da a todo hombre

La eterna salvación.


Nacido el Mesías ha,

Y en Su derredor,

Los santos ángeles de Dios

Vigilan con amor.

Alábenlo los astros;

Las nuevas proclamad

Que a los hombres dan la paz

Y buena voluntad.


Oh, cuán inmenso el amor

Que nuestro Dios mostró

Al enviar un Salvador;

Su Hijo nos mandó.

Aunque Su nacimiento

Pasó sin atención,

Aún lo puede recibir

El manso corazón.


Lyrics to O Little Town of Bethlehem in English

O little town of Bethlehem,

How still we see thee lie;

Above thy deep and dreamless sleep

The silent stars go by.

Yet in thy dark streets shineth

The everlasting light;

The hopes and fears of all the years

Are met in thee tonight.


For Christ is born of Mary,

And gathered all above,

While mortals sleep, the angels keep

Their watch of wondering love.

O morning stars together,

Proclaim the holy birth,

And praises sing to God the king,

And praises sing to God the king,


How silently, how silently,

The wondrous gift is given;

So God imparts to human hearts

The blessings of his heaven.

No ear may hear his coming,

But in this world of sin,

Where meek souls will receive him, still

The dear Christ enters in.
