Escucha, ¡oh Dios! La oración

Representative Text

1 Escucha, ¡oh Dios! la oración
que se dirige a ti
por los que en perdurable amor
se unen hoy aquí.

2 Que tu mirada de bondad
disfruten, buen Jesús;
infunde en ellos la piedad,
concédeles tu luz.

3 Su hogar bendice, Dios de paz;
que tengan tu sostén
y que, confiados en tu amor,
unidos siempre estén.

4 Haz sobre ellos descender
tu santa bendición;
en ti que puedan obtener
eterna salvación.
