Aparte del mundo

Representative Text

1 Aparte del mundo, Señor, me retiro,
De lucha y tumultos ansioso de huir;
De escenas horribles, do el mal victorioso
Extiende sus redes y se hace servir.

2 El sitio apartado, la sombra tranquila,
Convienen al canto de ruego y loor;
Tu mano piadosa los hizo sin duda
En bien del que humilde te sigue, Señor.

3 Allí, si tu Espíritu inspira a mi alma,
Y llega la gracia mi pecho a tocar,
Con paz y cariño, con gozo podría
A Ti fervoroso tributo elevar.

4 Te debo tributos de amor y de gracias
Por este abundante, glorioso festín,
Y cantos que puedan oírse en los cielos
Por años sin cuento, por siglos sin fin.
