Que bien se yo la fuente
Que mana y corre.
Aunque es de noche.
Aunque es de noche.


Su origen no lo se΄, pues no le tiene,
Mas se΄ que todo origen de ella viene,
Aunque es de noche.
Aunque es de noche.

Se΄ que no puede ser cosa tan bella,
Y que cielos y tierra beben de ella,
Aunque es de noche.
Aunque es de noche.

Su claridad nunca es oscurecida,
Y se΄ que toda luz de ella es venida,
Aunque es de noche.
Aunque es de noche.

Aquesta eterna fonte esta´ escondida
En este vivo pan por darnos vida,
Aunque es de noche.
Aunque es de noche.
