Después, Señor

Representative Text

1 Después, Señor, de haber tenido aquí
De tu Palabra la bendita luz,
A nuestro hogar condúcenos, y allí
De todos cuida ¡buen Pastor Jesús!

2 En nuestras almas graba con poder
Tu fiel Palabra, cada exhortación;
Y que tu ley pudiendo comprender
Contigo estemos en mayor unión.

3 Al terminar, Señor, mi vida aquí,
Mis ojos hazme sin temor cerrar,
Y al despertar en gloria junto a Ti
De paz eterna hazme disfrutar.

Amén.
