Dios está aquí
tan cierto como el aire que respiro
tan cierto como la mañana y el atardecer
tan cierto es Dios que se le hablo.
El me puedo oír.

Le podemos sentir
como aquel que está a nuestro lado.
Yo le escucho latir es la vida en mi corazón
Es amoincondicional amor sin sufrimiento comprensión
de todos las cosas es Dios quien nos da.

Dios está aquí
es toda la esperanza que hay en tí;
es luz, en alegría en todos tus cosas cada día
es el nobles sentimiento en tu corazón
Le podemos sentir, evitando malos pensamientos
Dios es el momento en que sientes felicidad

Dios es quién
te lleva en sus brazos de esperanza, paz fe;
cuando en el camino te sientes desfallecer.
Dios está aquí
Dios está en Tí.
