Más santidad dame

Representative Text

1 Más santidad dame,

Más celo en servirle,
Más grata oración.

2 Más prudente hazme,
Más sabio también,
Más firme en tu causa
Más fuerte y más fiel,
Más recto en la vida,
Más libre del mal,
Más humilde hijo,
Más pronto en amar.

3 Más pureza dame,
Más sabio también,
Más de tu dominio,
Más paz en la cruz,
Más rica esperanza,
Más obras aquí,
Más ansia del cielo,
Más goces allí.
