Aquí del pan partido tomaré

Representative Text

1 Aquí del pan partido tomaré,
y de la copa de tu comunión.
El nombre de mi Dios invocaré,
gozándome en la paz de salvación.

2 La culpa del pecado mía fue,
más tuya fue la sangre de la cruz.
Por ella y tu justicia tengo, sé,
perdón, consuelo y paz, Señor Jesus.

3 Nos levantamos de la cena aquí;
la fiesta pasa, mas no así el amor.
Todo se va, mas tú te quedas, sí,
cerca, muy cerca, amado Salvador.
