Representative Text

1 Dios del cielo, clemente, benigno,
Ser supremo, divino Hacedor,
Tú que al mundo has amado al extremo
De mandarnos al buen Redentor;

2 A tu trono glorioso acudimos,
Esperando nos quieras oír,
A pedirte bendigas las obras
Que en tu nombre se hicieren aquí.

3 Que esta casa que a Ti te ofrecemos
Con ferviente cariño filial,
La destines por siempre a la obra
De enseñar tu infinita verdad.

4 Que la santa y divina Escritura
Manifieste su espléndida luz,
En las vidas de los que acudieren
A esta casa buscando salud.

5 Que el que sufre dolencias del alma
Algún bálsamo encuentre en tu amor,
Y al que llore y no logre consuelo
Seque el llanto de su corazón.

6 Que podamos ver fruto en la obra
En millares que acudan a Ti,
Y con ello este pueblo aquí logre
Paz, justicia y progreso sin fin.
