O Jehova omnipotente Dios

Representative Text

1 ¡Oh Jehová, omnipotente Dios!
Tú que entre orbes reinas con poder,
Presta tu oído a nuestra humilde voz,
Nuestra canción hoy dígnate atender.

2 Eterno Padre, nuestro corazón,
A Ti profesa un inefable amor;
Entre nosotros tu presencia pon;
Tiéndenos, pues, tu brazo protector.

3 A nuestra patria da tu bendición;
Enséñanos tus leyes a guardar;
Alumbra la conciencia y la razón;
Domina siempre Tú en todo hogar.

4 Defiéndenos del enemigo cruel;
Concede a nuestras faltas corrección;
Nuestro servicio sea siempre fiel;
Y sénos Tú la eterna salvación.
