La mejor música navideña para escuchar y ver

Las mejores versiones del tradicional himno Holy Night (Santa noche) cantado por:
Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Sara Brightman (lírica), Acapella, David Phelps. Para disfrutar...

Aquí la letra de esta canción para meditar y ser elevados por la gracia de Dios al dar a su Hijo por nosotros.

"Pero cuando se cumplió el plazo,* Dios envió a su Hijo, nacido de una mujer, nacido bajo la ley, para rescatar a los que estaban bajo la ley, a fin de que fuéramos adoptados como hijos". Gálatas 4:4, 5

Oh holy night!
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appear'd and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night divine

*(Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here come the wise men from Orient land
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend.)

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.

Christ is the Lord
O praise His Name forever
His power and glory evermore proclaim
His power and glory evermore proclaim

Fall on your knees
Oh, hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O holy night, o night divine
