Los santos de la tierra y los del cielo

Representative Text

1 Los santos de la tierra y los del cielo
Componen una sola comunión;
Todas la gracia del Señor reciben
Unidos por los lazos del amor.

2 Como un ejército del Dios viviente,
Su voz nos es forzoso obedecer;
Una parte ha cruzado ya el torrente
Y la otra parte cruzará después.

3 ¡Vedlo! Millares suu inmortal morada
Van cada día legres a buscar;
Nosotros ya llegamos a la orilla;
Pronto tras ellos hemos de pasar.

4 Señor Jesús, sé siempre nuestro guía:
Aplaca de las olas el furor;
Haz Tú que al fin anclemos en el cielo,
Puerto feliz de eterna salvación.

Amén.
