Representative Text

1 ¡Oh Padre, eterno Dios!
Alzamos nuestra voz
En gratitud
De cuanto Tú nos das
Con sin igual amor,
Hallando nuestra paz
En tu salud.

2 ¡Bendito Salvador!
Te damos con amor
El corazón,
Yaqui nos puedes ver
Que humildes a tu altar
Venimos a ofrecer
Precioso don.

3 ¡Espíritu de Dios!
Escucha nuestra voz;
Por tu bondad
Derrama en nuestro ser
Divina claridad,
Para poder vivir
En santidad.

Amén.
