Cristo Salvador, Sé mi guiador

Representative Text

1 Cristo Salvador,
Sé mi guiador
En la senda de esta vida
A la patria apetecida;
¡Nuestro galardón
Nos espera en Sion!

2 En dura aflicción,
Haz que el corazón
Nunca del sufrir se queje,
Mas a Ti el remedio deje:
¡Quien te quiere amar
Aquí ha de penar!

3 Si nos toca ver
A otros padecer
De la vida en dura vía,
Da celeste simpatía:
¡Vuelve al corazón
De tu paz el don!

4 Lágrimas, dolor
Quita, ¡oh Salvador!
En tu dulce compañía
Guíanos día tras día:
¡Ábrenos al fin
Del cielo el jardín!
