¡Oh nuestro Padre, eterno Dios! Que guías al mortal

Representative Text

1 ¡Oh nuestro Padre, eterno Dios!
Que guías al mortal,
El año nuevo nuestra voz
Te quiere consagrar.

2 El cielo, el orbe, el hombre están
Diciendo tu poder;
La vida, el tiempo pasarán
Según tu buen placer.

3 Demuéstranos la vanidad
Del mundo vil y ruin.
Grandezas, bienes, potestad,
Perecerán al fin.

4 Venimos hoy a prometer
Servirte con fervor,
Con nuevo corazón y un ser
Celoso de tu amor.

5 Mas vano es nuestro esfuerzo, Dios,
Si falta tu sostén;
Alienta el alma con tu voz
Y danos todo bien.

6 ¡Tus ángeles envíanos!
¡Corona con tu bien
La vida nuestra! ¡Guíanos
Al celestial Edén!
