Ven a nuestras almas

Representative Text

1 Ven a nuestras almas,

2 ¡Fuente de consuelo,

3 La divina llama

Y su pecho llena
Del amor sagrado.

4 Con tus aguas puras
Limpia lo manchado;
Riega lo que es seco;

5 A tus fieles todos
Sólo en Ti confiados,
Dales paz que abunde
Y el reposo ansiado.

6 Dales de tu gracia
El favor preclaro,
La salud eterna,
Gozo continuado.
