Despertad! A todos llama

Full Text

1 ¡Despertad! A todos llama
Del guarda fiel la gran proclama:
¡Despierta, pueblo de David!
Ya la media noche suena,
Venid a la celeste cena;
Prudentes virenes, salid.
Al regio espsos ved,
La lámpara encended.
¡Aleluya!
Presto acudid al adalid;
Con júbilo a sus bodas id.

2 Escuchando el dulce canto,
Jerusalén con gozo santo
Despierta, alegre, pronta está.
el es poso que desciende
Del ciol, los espacios hiende,
Su blanca aurora brilla ya.
¡Nendito Salvador1
Clamemos con fevor
El hosana.
Luz celestial, quia al mortal
A aqulla fiesta triumfal.

3 ¡Gloria Él cantad, qurubes
Por sobre las más altas nubes
Con arpas de sonora voz.
¡Doce perlas los portales
De las moradas clestiales
Que al fiel creyente abiertos son!
Jamás se contempló,
Ni oído humano oyó
Tano gozo.
A disfrutar id y a cantar
El aleluya sin cesar.
