MP3 Recording of Noche de paz

Noche de paz
(Spanish)

Noche de paz, noche de amor,
Todo duerme en derredor.
Entre sus astros que esparcen su luz
Bella anunciando al niñito Jesús.
Brilla la estrella de paz,
Brilla la estrella de paz.

Noche de paz, noche de amor,
Todo duerme en derredor.
Sólo velan en la oscuridad
Los pastores que en el campo están
Y la estrella de Belén,
Y la estrella de Belén.

Noche de paz, noche de amor,
Todo duerme en derredor.
Sobre el santo niño Jesús
Una estrella esparce su luz,
Brilla sobre el Rey,
Brilla sobre el Rey.

Noche de paz, noche de amor,
Todo duerme en derredor;
Fieles velando allí en Belén
Los pastores, la madre también,
Y la estrella de paz,
Y la estrella de paz.

Here’s an English translation of the Spanish version:

Night of Peace

Night of peace, night of love,
All around are asleep.
Among the stars that spread their light,
Beautifully announcing the baby Jesus,
Shines the star of peace,
Shines the star of peace.

Night of peace, night of love,
All around are asleep.
Just watch in the dark,
The shepherds that are in the field
And the star of Bethlehem,
And the star of Bethlehem.

Night of peace, night of love,
All around are asleep.
Over the Holy Child Jesus
A star spreads its light,
Shining over the King,
Shining over the King.

Night of peace, night of love,
All around are asleep.
A faithful vigil there in Bethlehem;
The shepherds, the mother too,
And the star of peace,
And the star of peace.

    Thank you for putting this on here. I have been trying to find a Spanish copy so I can learn it for my ‘boys’ at a local Mexican restaurant. We[my husband of 51 years and I] prepare more than 12 or 14 treats to take to the restaurant each year just before Christmas & I want to sing it for them as this will be our last party. My husband & I are moving to be near our older daughter in another state. We love these boys. I have been trying to learn Spanish by myself & with their help for over 16 years. I tutored them in English as I could read Spanish so with my little knowledge & a lot of demonstrations, pointing, gesturing, & drawings on the marker board, they have learned survival English & more. I will miss them so very much. If I knew how to download this I would put it on my MP3 player & could practice it all day. Thanks again. Maestra
