Oh, háblame y hablaré

Representative Text

1 Oh, háblame y hablaré,
Señor, en eco de tu dulce voz;
y con tu ayuda buscaré
al que anda lejos y sin Dios.

2 Oh, guíame y guiaré
en tus caminos, oh Señor,
al vacilante y débil pie
que va por sendas de error.

3 Enséñame y enseñaré

a los hambrientos tu maná.

4 Oh, lléname, mi Salvador,
según tu santa voluntad.
Servirte es mi sumo honor
ahora y en la eternidad.
