Roca de la eternidad

Representative Text

2 Aunque yo aparezca fiel,
Y aunque llore sin cesar,
Del pecado no podré
Justificación lograr;
Sólo en Ti, teniendo fe,
Puedo mi perdón hallar.

3 Mientras deba aquí vivir,
Mi postrer suspiro al dar,
Cuando vaya a responder
A tu augusto tribunal:
Sé mi escondedero fiel,
Roca de la eternidad.

Amén.
