Divina Luz

Representative Text

1. Divina Luz, con tu esplendor benigno
guarda mi pie,
densa es la noche y áspero el camino;
mi guía se.
Harto distante de mi hogar estoy;
que al dulce hogar de las alturas voy.

2. Amargos años hubo en que tu gracia
no supliqué;
de mi valor fiando en la eficacia,
no tuve fe;
mas hoy deploro aquella ceguedad;
préstame, oh Luz, tu grata claridad.

3. Al guiarme tú por noche esplendente,
yo cruzaré
el valle, el monte, el risco y el torrente,
con firme píe;
hasta que empiece el día a despuntar,
y entre yo en mi celeste hogar.
