Cantad con júbilo

Full Text

1 Cantad con júbilo
Un nuevo cántico:
a salvar al hombre
Viene Cristo aqui;
Ensalzad su nombre
Dadle gracias mil.
¡Todo canta en mí!
¡Todo canta en mí!

2 ¡Qué grande es su bondd1
¡Quée dulce su humildad!
Un pesebre en cuna
Convirtió, señal
Que en major fortuna
Convirtiendo el mal,
Salvará al mortal.
Salvará al mortal.

3 Amor me vino a dar,
Contento y beienestar.
Sin Él condenado
Fuera, sin perdón;
El nos ha ganado
Plena salvación.
¡Canta, oh corazón!
¡Canta, oh corazón!

4 Amor, ¡oh Cristo!, y paz
Irradian de tu faz.
Cánticos te damos
En la tierra aquí.
Gloria contaremos
En el cielo a Ti.
¡Llévanos allí!
¡Llévanos allí!
