Más cerca, oh Dios, de tí Anhelo estar

Representative Text

1 Más cerca, oh Dios, de ti, anhelo estar,
aunque amarga cruz háyame de alzar.
Será mi canto aquí: ¡Más cerca, oh Dios, de ti!
¡Más cerca, oh, Dios, de ti, más cerca, sí!

2 Si peregrino soy, y de ansieded
me llena, puesto el sol, la oscuridad,
mi sueño aún así ha de llevarme a ti.
¡Más cerca, oh, Dios, de ti, más cerca, sí!

3 Y luego al despertar, te alabaré;
de gracias, un altar te levantaré;
allí mi corazón eleve su oración.
¡Más cerca, oh, Dios de ti. más cerca, sí!
