Transfórmame, Espíritu

Representative Text

1 Transfórmame, Espíritu de Dios;
líbrame de la ambición carnal;
Renueva tú mi débil corazón,
y haz que te ame como debo amar.

2 No pido sueños, celestial visión,
ni roto el velo del misterio ver,
Ni querubines, ni eternal mansión;
sólo que limpies, oh Señor, mi ser.

3 Hazme sensible a tu dirección;
quiero vencer el mal con decisión;
Calla la duda, la murmuración;
dame constancia en la oración.

4 Quiero amarte, oh Señor, mi Dios;
mi mente, alma y corazón te doy;
veo la cruz do Cristo padeció,
y me consagro a tu servicio hoy.
