De la Iglesia el fundamento

Representative Text

1 De la iglesia el fundamento
Es Jesús el Salvador;
Por la obra de su gracia
Le dio vida su Señor;
Para hacerla esposa quiso
De los cielos descender,
Y su sangre por limpiarla
En la horrible cruz verter.

2 De entre todas las naciones
Escogida en variedad,
Al través de las edades
Se presenta en unidad;
Y los títulos que ostenta
Son, tener sólo un Señor,
Una fe, sólo un bautismo,
Un constante y puro amor.

3 Aunque el mundo, combatida
Del error por el vaivén,
Y de cismas desgarrada,
La contemple con desdén:
En vigilia están los fieles
Y jamás cesan de orar;
Lo que es hoy tristeza, pronto
Será júbilo y cantar.

4 Al través de sufrimientos
Y fatigas y dolor,
El glorioso día espera
En que vuelva su Señor;
Consumada su carrera
U perfecta su salud,
Entrará libre y triunfante
En la eterna beatitud.

Amén.
