Ya el fin se acerca de tu día santo

Representative Text

1 Ya el fin se acerca de tu día santo:
Benigno acoge la oración, Señor,
Que te ofrecemos en humilde canto
Cual sacrificio de agradable olor.

2 De nuestro culto borra los defectos,
Da a nuestras preces eficaz virtud;
Tu amor tan sólo nos hará perfectos,
Tu sola gracia nos dará salud.

3 Haz que del mundo la escabrosa senda
Correr podamos con seguro pie,
Y en los conflictos que la duda tienda
Tu luz alumbre nuestra débil fe.

4 Por las mercedes a tu amor debidas,
Por el descanso y plácido solaz,
Mil gracias sean tan sólo a Ti rendidas,
Rey de los reyes, príncipe de paz.

Amén.
