Tu reino amo, O Dios

Representative Text

1 Tu reino amo, ¡oh Dios!,
Tu casa de oración;
Y al pueblo que en Jesús halló
Completa redención.

2 Tu iglesia, mi Señor;
Su templo; su ritual;
La iglesia que guiando vas
Con mano paternal.

3 Por ella mi oración,
Mis lágrimas de amor,
Y mis cuidados y mi afán
Por ella son, Señor.

4 Un gozo sin igual
Me causa en ella estar;
Pues siempre allí tu comunión
Anhelo disfrutar.

5 Yo sé que durará,
Mi Dios, cual tu verdad;
Y victoriosa llegará
A Ti en la eternidad.
