De tus santos en la tierra

Representative Text

1 De tus santos en la tierra
y los que han triunfado ya,
gloria y paz, Jesús bendito,
Tú recibes sin cesar.
Victoriosos fueron ellos
porque fuiste el vencedor;
y es la luz de sus diademas,
de tu rostro el esplendor.

2 Oh Señor y Rey del cielo,
de los santos galardón;
pues a ellos das consuelo
en tu eterna comunión.
Haz que en no lejano día
con tus santos y en tu amor,
la solemne eucaristia
celebremos en tu honor.

3 Y por cuantos redimidos,
en tu fe y en tu temor,
han partido de esta vida,
y hoy entonan tu loor,
te alabamos y adoramos,
Señor nuestro y Padre Dios,
imitando tus virtudes,
caminando de Él en pos.

4 A Dios Padre omnipotente,
a Jesús el Salvador,
y al Espíritu divino,
celestial Consolador,
se tribute la alabanza,
gloria, honor y potestad,
por los siglos de los siglos,
Trino Dios en unidad.
