Divisase la aurora

Representative Text

1 Divísase la aurora,
La noche da lugar;
Conoce el hombre y llora
Su antigua ceguedad;
Cada aura que al mar crespa
Trae nuevas de la lid,
De gente que se apresta
Por Cristo a combatir.

2 Rocíos abundantes
De gracia celestial,
Dan perspectivas grandes
Y nuevas, sin cesar.
Cada oración que sube
Respuesta plena trae;
De céfiros y nubes
El bien precioso cae.

3 Las gentes ya se inclinan
Al Dios de nuestro amor;
Sus maravillas creen
Y gozan su favor;
Al llamamiento acude
De míseros tropel;
Altares falsos se hunden
Entre un sonor "amén."
