Te Loamos, ¡Oh Dios!

Representative Text

1 Te loamos, ¡Oh Dios! con unánime voz,
Porque en Cristo tu Hijo nos diste perdón.

¡Aleluya! te alabamos,
¡Cuán grande es tu amor!
¡Aleluya! te adoramos,
bendito Señor.

2 Te loamos, Jesús, quien tu trono de luz
Has dejado por darnos salud en la cruz. [Coro]

3 Te damos loor, Santo Consolador,
Quien nos llenas de gozo y santo valor. [Coro]

4 Unidos load a la gran Trinidad,
Que es la fuente de gracia, virtud y verdad. [Coro]
