Desciende, Espíritu de amor

Representative Text

1 Desciende, Espíritu de amor,
Paloma celestial,
Promesa fiel del Salvador,
de gracia manantial.

2 Aviva nuestra escasa fe,
Y danos la salud;
Benigno guía nuestro pie
Por sendas de virtud.

3 Consuela nuestro corazón
Y habita siempre en él;
Concédele el precioso don
De serte siempre fiel.

4 Derrama en pródigo raudal
La vida, gracia y luz;
Concédenos el eternal
Rescate de la cruz.

5 Tus frutos da de suave olor
Al corazón: solaz,
Benignidad, paciencia amor,
Bondad, templanza y paz.

6 Al Padre sea todo honor,
Y al Hijo honor también,
Y al celestial Consolador,
