Tú, de los fieles eternal cabeza

Representative Text

1 Tú de los fieles eternal cabeza,
De tierra y cielos divinal Señor,
Sobre tus siervos abre con largueza
Raudales pros de tu imenso amor.

2 Ellos al mundo tus preciados dones
Enseñarán; proclamarán salud:
Dales tu gracia, da a sus corazones
Por ornamento, santa rectitud.

3 Cuando a los hombres con amore enseñen
De tu Evangelio celestial verdad,
Su ministerio santo desempeñen
Ardiendo el peco en férvida piedad.

4 Sabiduría mansedumbre y celo
DeTi reciban, y sagrada unción,
De salvar almas incansable anhelo
Y el estimable don de la oración.

5 Al pecador con caridad corrijan,
Del flaco sean eficaz sostén,
A los cansados con amor dirijan
Por los caminos de verdad y bien.

6 Brillen cual astros en tu diestra mano
Mientras el mundo habiten del dolor;
Y al poseer tu reino soberano,
Coronas ciñan de inmortal fulgor.

Amén
