Representative Text

1 ¡Dios, nuestro auxilio en los pasados siglos!
¡Nuestra esperanza en años venideros!
¡Nuestro refugio en hórrida tormenta,
Y protector eterno!

2 Bajo la sombra de tu excelso trono
En dulce paz tus santos moran siempre;
Tu brazo solo a defendernos basta,
Y nuestro amparo es cierto.

3 En nuestra vida toda y en la muerte
En tu promesa nuestra fe ponemos;
Y nuestros hijos cantarán gozosos
Cuando hayamos ya muerto.

4 ¡Dios, nuestro auxilio enlos pasados siglos!
¡Nuestra esperanza en años venideros!
Se Tú defensa nuestra en esta vida,
Y protector eterno.

Amén.
