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.

Es tu ley, Señor,
faro celestial,
Que en perenne resplandor,
norte y guía es del mortal.

2 Sí, obediente oí tu voz,
en tu gracia fuerza hallé,
Y confirme pie y veloz
por tus sendas caminé. [Coro]

3 Tu verdad es mi sostén
contra duda y tentación,
Y destila calma y bien
cuando asalta la aflicción. [Coro]

4 Son tus dichos, para mí,
prendas fieles de salud;
Dame, pues, que te oiga a ti,
con filial solicitud. [Coro]
