Amémonos, hermanos

Representative Text

1 Amémonos, hermanos*,
con tierno y puro amor;
Un sólo cuerpo somos,
y nuestro Padre es Dios.
Amémonos, hermanos*,

que su precioso sangre
por todos derramó.

2 Amémonos, hermanos*,
en dulce comunión;
y paz afecto y gracia
dará el Consolador.
Amémonos, hermanos*,
y en nuestra santa unión
no existan asperezas
ni discordante voz.

3 Amémonos, hermanos*,
y al mundo pecador
mostremos cómo viven
los que salvados son.
Amémonos, hermanos*,
con todo el corazón;
lo ordena el Dios y Padre;
su ley es ley de amor.

* hermanas
