Padre, tu palabra es Mi delicia y mi solaz

Representative Text

1 Padre, tu Palabra es
Mi delicia y mi solaz;
Guíe siempre aquí mis pies,
Y a mi pecho traiga paz.

2 Tu Palabra es, ¡oh Señor!,
Luz y faro celestial,
Que en perenne resplandor
Norte y guía es del mortal.

3 Cuando atiendo yo a tu voz
Paz y gracia puedo hallar,
Y con firme pie y veloz
Por tus sendas caminar.

4 Tu verdad es mi sostén
Contra duda y tentación,
Y me infunde calma y bien
Cuando oprime la aflicción.

5 Son tus dichos para mí
Prendas fieles de salud;
Haz, ¡oh Dios! que te oiga a Ti
Con filial solicitud.
