Amigo de los niños

Representative Text

1 Amigo de los niños,
Divino Salvador,
Que siempre fiel nos miras
Con inefable amor,
El tiempo nunca cambia
Ni enfría tu amistad;
Tú de tan dulce nombre
Digno eres en verdad.

2 Los ojos no te miran,
Mas siempre cerca estás;
Cuidándonos amante,
Por donde vamos vas.
Y en la callada noche,
Los ojos al cerrar,
Tu arrullo nos da alegre
Y plácido soñar.

3 Jesús, mi fiel amigo,
Jamás podré pagar
Tu singular fineza,
Tu tierno amor sin par;
Mas toma, Cristo mío,
En prenda de amistad,
Mi corazón, que es tuyo
Por una eternidad.

Since then he has written over 300, and of these a large proportion are in common use. They appeared in magazines and small mission hymn-books, including:— (1) The Youth's Magazine; (2) The British Messenger; (3) The London Messenger; (4) Trotter's Evangelical Hymn Book, 1860; (5) The Ambassador… Go to person page >
