A Jesucristo ven sin tardar

Representative Text

1 A Jesucristo ven sin tardar,
Que entre nosotros hoy él está,
Y te convida con dulce afán,
Tierno diciendo: Ven.

Coro:
Oh! cuán grata nuestra reunión,
Cuando allá, Señor, en tu mansión,
Contigo estemos en comunión
Gozando eterno bien!

2 Piensa que él solo puede colmar
Tu triste pecho de gozo y paz;
Y porque anhela tu bien estar,
Vuelve a decirte: Ven. [Coro]

3 Su voz escucha sin demorar,
Y grato acepta lo que hoy te da;
Tal vez mañana no habrá lugar,
No te detengas, Ven. [Coro]
