Cantad alegres al Señor Mortales todos por doquier

Representative Text

1 Cantad alegres al Señor,
Mortales todos por doquier;
Servidle siempre con fervor,
Obedecedle con placer.

2 Con gratitud canción alzad
Al Hacedor que el ser os dio:
Al Dios excelso venerad,
Que como Padre nos amó.

3 Su pueblo somos: salvará
A sus ovejas el pastor;
Ninguna ya se perderá,
Pues la protege su Señor.

4 De su promesa el alto don
Nos dio, y fiel sabrá cumplir,
Si a nuestra vez el corazón
Le damos puro hasta el morir.
