Representative Text

1 Hoy gozoso medito en la tierra mejor
Do al ponerse mi sol llegaré.
Cuando me hay por gracia con Cristo el Señor
¿La corona de estrellas tendré?

¿Una bella corona de estrellas tendré
Por las almas que a Cristo llevé?

2 De la fuerza de Dios esperando el poder
Trabajar quiero siempre y orar
Por las almas, y al fin, cual estrellas saber
Que en mi sienes irán a brillar. [Coro]

3 ¡Oh! Qué gozo en los cielos será para mi
Viva gema poner a sus pies
Y tener en mi frente corona que allí
Ornen joyas de tal brillantez. [Coro]
