Rey soberano y Dios, Te ensalza nuestra voz

Representative Text

1 Rey soberano y Dios,
Te ensalza nuestra voz
En fiel loor;
Rey nuestro siempre sé,
Y haz que tu santa ley
a guarde fiel tu grey,
¡Oh Dios de amor!

2 ¡Oh Verbo celestial!
Tu espada sin igual
Da protección;
A tu obra cuidarás,
Y la protegerás;
Sobre ella mandarás
Tu santa unción.

3 Santo Consolador,
del alma inspirador,
Oye la voz
De nuestra petición,
Que eleva el corazón,
Pidiendo bendición
Del santo Dios.

4 ¡Oh santo y trino Dios!
Atiende a nuestra voz,
Prez u loor;
Haz que en la eternidad
Cantemos tu bondad,
Tu gloria y majestad
En santo amor.
