Buen Jesús, henos aquí

Representative Text

1 Buen Jesús, henos aquí
A la voz de tu Palabra;
Nuestro ser dirge a Ti,
Que tu Espíritu nos abra
Su sentido, y de este suelo
Nos eleve más al cielo.

2 Nuestra mente es y razón
De tinieblas rodeada:
De tu luz envia el don
Con que sea iluminada;
DanosTú, de gracia lleno,
El poder de hacerlo bueno.

3 Tú, de gloria resplandor,
Luz de luz, de Dios nacido,
Llénanos de vivo amor;
Ábrenos mente y sentido.
Nuestro canto y nuestro ruego
Sean de tu altar el fuego.

Amén.
