Songs for Advent and Christmas 12: Cuando venga el niño

I meant to put this video up before going for my annual year-end retreat to Holy Cross Abbey but, hey, we're still in the Christmas season! I can't find lyrics to this song by Padre Diego Cabrera, a Peruvian Columbine missionary priest, but what it says is that when the Child Jesus comes, there will be peace and justice and love enough for all. I love Padre Diego's videos because of the beauty he sees in the faces of the poor, especially the children.

By the way, while preparing this post, I found a little treasure trove of Padre Diego cancioneros. Unfortunately, it doesn't include this album...
