Al Señor Jesús loemos

Representative Text

1 Al Señor Jesús loemos,
porque tanto le debemos;
Lo que somos y tenemos,
sólo es nuestro en él.

2 Es Jesús su nombre amado;
a su pueblo él ha salvado;
Es el triunfo asegurado
por su gran poder.

3 ¡Oh, confiad en este amigo!
nos liberta del peligro,
Nos es hoy un fuerte abrigo
y hasta el fin será.

4 Cumpliráse nuestro anhelo,
en el día en que sin velo
Le veremos en el cielo
al Señor Jesús.
