1 ¡Oh Señor! A tus altares
Acudimos con fervor,
A rogarte nos depares
Los tesoros de tu amor.

2 De tu Espíritu pedimos
La divina inspiración,
Y en la senda que seguimos
Su gloriosa protección.

3 Imploramos su presencia
Que la fuerza nos dará,
Pues su santa y noble influencia
Del caer nos librará.

4 Tú, de Cristo la promesa,
Celestial Consolador,
Ven y cambia la tibieza
En un fuego abrasador.

5 Débil es nuestra esperanza,
Muy pequeña nuestra fe:
Ven, infunde la confianza,
Que a la vida gozo dé.
