Óyeme, Jesús divino

Representative Text

1 Óyeme, Jesús divino:
Dame hoy tu bendición;
En la noche tan oscura
Dame paz y protección.

2 Porque has sido Tú mi guía,
Te doy gracias con amor.
Todas mis necesidades
Has suplido, mi Señor.

3 Guarda tierno a mis amigos,
Limpia Tú mi corazón;
Y al morir, que para siempre
Viva en celestial mansión.
