Salvador, mi bien eterno

Representative Text

1 Salvador, mi bien eterno,
Que eres vida para mí,
Haz que en fatigosa senda
Gracia siempre encuentre en Ti.

2 Ni los bienes, ni placeres,
Ni renombre busco aquí;
Haz que en pruebas, en desdenes,
Gracia siempre encuentre en Ti.

3 Si me sumo en valle oscuro
O en rugiente mar hostil,
Haz, Jesús, que con tu amparo
Gracia siempre encuentre en Ti.

Amén.
