Santo santo santo senor omnipotente

Full Text

1 ¡Santo! ¡Santo! ¡Santo! Señor omnipotente,
siempre el labio mio loores te dará.
¡Santo! ¡Santo! ¡Santo! te adoro reverente,
Dios en tres personas, bendita Trinidad.

2 ¡Santo! ¡Santo! ¡Santo! la inmensa muchedumbre
de ángeles que cumplen tu santa voluntad,
ante ti se postra, bañada de tu lumbre,
ante ti que has sido, que eres y serás.

3 ¡Santo! ¡Santo! ¡Santo! por más que estés velado,
e imposible sea tu gloria contemplar;
Santo tú eres soló, y nada hay a tu lado
en poder perfecto, pureza y caridad.

4 ¡Santo! ¡Santo! ¡Santo! la gloria de tu nombre
vemos en tus obras en cielo, tierra y mar;
¡Santo! ¡Santo! ¡Santo! te adorará todo hombre,
Dios en tres personas, bendita Trinidad.
