Alma, bendice a Dios

Representative Text

1 Alma, bendice al Señor, rey potente de gloria;
De sus mercedes esté viva en ti la memoria.
¡Oh! Despertad,
Arpa y salterio: entonad
Himnos de honor y victoria.

2 Alma, bendice al Señor que a los orbes gobierna,
Y que en sus alas te lleva, cual águila tierna;
El te guardó
Como mejor le agradó,
¿No ves su mano paterna?

3 Alma, bendice al Señor, de tu vida la fuente,
Que te creó, y en salud te sostiene clemente.
Tu defensor
En todo trance y dolor,
Su diestra es omnipotente.

4 Alma, bendice al Señor que prospera tu estado,
Y beneficios sin fin sobre ti ha derramado.
Piensa en que es Él
Rico, amoroso y muy fiel,
Como mil pruebas te ha dado.

5 ¡Alma, bendice al Señor y su amor infinito!
Con todo el pueblo de Dios su alabanza repito.
¡Dios, mi salud,
De todo bien plenitud,
Seas por siempre bendito!
