Incierta es del mortal la suerte

Representative Text

1 Incierta es del mortal la suerte;
Cual hierba pronto pasará;
Aguarda a todo ser la muerte,
¿Quién sabe, si ya cerca está?
Mi Dios, de Cristo por la cruz
Dame al morir tu eterna luz.

2 La flor, hermosa en la mañana,
Marchita por la tarde está;
El hombre de apariencia sana,
Su fin muy pronto encotrará.
Mi Dios, de Cristo por la cruz
Dame al morir tu eterna luz.

3 Señor, haz dulce a mí tu cielo,
Y amargo el goce mundanal;
Que peregrino en este suelo
Yo busque el reino celestial.
Mi Dios, de Cristo por la cruz
Dame al morir tu eterna luz.

4 Ya que por Él soy rescatado,
Iré de Jesucristo en pos;
Mi mano pongo en su costado
Y digo: ¡Mi Señor, mi Dios!
Mi Dios, de Cristo por la cruz
Dame al morir tu eterna luz.

5 Venga mi fin hoy o mañana:
En traje blanco envuelto estoy.
Del re la boda está cercana;
Yo sé que a eterna gloria voy.
Mi Dios, de Cristo por la cruz
Dame al morir tu eterna luz.

6 Seguro vivo en tal confianza,
Se Él me llama, muero en paz,
Bondoso diome la esperanza,
Que en gloria yo he de ver su faz.
Mi Dios, de Cristo por la cruz
Dame al morir tu eterna luz.

Amén.
