Fourth Sunday of Advent: "Un Pueblo Que Camina"

On the fourth Sunday of Advent, the angel’s candle (Luke 1: 39-55) is lit, along with the first three, reminding the faithful of the heavenly host or large army of angels who proclaimed Jesus’ arrival with “Behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy!” The much-anticipated birth of Jesus on Christmas is just a few days away, the culmination of four Sundays of Advent that are imbued with hope, peace, love, and joy.

On this day, I share two versions of the song  "Un Pueblo Que Camina por el Mundo  (A people Who Walk Across the World.).  One version is from a choir at Parroquia Inmaculada Concepción in El Salvador. The other is a more formal version put together especially for Advent.
Un pueblo que camina por el mundo gritando: ven Señor, un pueblo que busca en esta vida la gran liberación....(A people who walk across the world shouting, come O Lord, a people who in this life seeks the great liberation).

Los pobres siempre esperan el amanecer de un día mas justo y sin opresión, los pobres hemos puesto la esperanza en ti, Libertador...(The poor always await the dawn of a day that is more just and without oppression, we the poor have put our hopes on you, our Liberator).    Here are the full lyrics in Spanish
