Del alma el sol, mi Salvador

Representative Text

1 Del alma el sol, mi Salvador,
Jamás hay noche en donde estás;
Que no me impida aquí, Señor,
Terrena nube ver tu faz.

2 Que yo mis ojos al cerrar
En blando sueño arrobador,
¡Cuán dulce, diga, es descansar
En tu regazo, mi Señor!

3 Conmigo sé al amanecer,
No puedo yo sin Ti vivir;
Conmigo sé la anochecer,
No quiero yo sin Ti morir.

4 Si alguno que hoy errante va,
Oyó tu voz, tu voz de amor,
Que deje el mal y encuentre ya
Reposo en Ti, su Salvador.

5 Y aquí la senda al continuar
Con todos ve, Jesús, Señor,
Hasta que al fin, allá en tu hogar
Nos cubra ya tu eterno amor.

It is somewhat remarkable that amid this brilliantly successful career,… Go to person page >
