Nunca, Dios Mío

Representative Text

1 Nunca, Dios mío, cesará mi labio
De bendecirte, de cantar tu gloria.
Porque conservo de tu amor inmenso
Grata memoria.

2 Cuando perdido en mundanal sendero,
No me cercaba sino niebla oscura.
Tú me miraste, y alumbróme un rayo
De tu luz pura.

3 Cuando inclinaba mi abatida frente
Del mal obrar el oneroso yugo,
Dulce reposo y eficaz alivio
Darme te plugo.

4 Cuando los dones malgasté a porfía,
Con que a mi alma pródigo adornaste,
"Padre, he pecado", con dolor te dije,
Y me abrazaste.
