Representative Text

1 Amémonos, hermanos,
Con tierno y puro amor;
Que un solo cuerpo somos,
Y nuestro Padre es Dios.

2 Amémonos, hermanos;
Lo quiere el Salvador,
Que su precioso sangre
Por todos derramó.

3 Amémonos, hermanos,
En dulce comunión;
Y paz y afecto y gracia
Dará el Consolador.

Y en nuestra santa unión
No existan asperezas
Ni discordante voz.

5 Amémonos, hermanos;
Y al mundo pecador
Mostremos como viven
Los que salvados son.

6 Amémonos, hermanos,
Con todo el corazón:
Lo ordena el Dios y Padre,
Su ley es ley de amor.
