O pan del cielo, dulce bien

Representative Text

1 ¡Oh, Pan del cielo dulce bien
Más excelente que el maná!
Si el alma busca tu sostén,
Eternamente vivirá.

2 ¡Oh, nuevo pacto del Señor,
En santa copa de salud!
Reconciliado el pecador
Se acerca a Dios por tu virtud.

3 Hambrienta el alma, vengo a Ti,
Mi buen Jesús con viva fe;
Tu mesa es franca para mí
Y en humildad me acercaré.

4 ¡Oh Tú, mi Pan sacramental
Que a mi alma nutre y da vigor!
Envida y júbilo inmortal
Diré las glorias de tu amor.
