Dios de la vida

Representative Text

1 Dios de la vida siempre confiamos sólo en ti;
en el pasado, vemos que tu mano siempre obró.
Con cada di nuevo al madrugar,
nos das tus dones que no han de faltar.

2 Dios del pasado, con nosotros vive hoy aquí;
guíanos hacia el celestial Canaán, Dios, nuestra luz.
La oscuridad ha de brillar cual luz,
y nuestros sueños realidad serán.

3 Dios del futuro, que no conocemos, Guíanos.
Aunque seamos fuertes, no nos dejes, oh Señor.
Sé Tú de cada día nuestro pan;
y nuestro hogar, la vida al terminar.
