Cariñoso Salvador

Representative Text

1 Cariñoso Salvador,
huyo de la tempestad;
A tu seno protector,
fiándome de tu bondad.
Sálvame, Señor Jesús,
de las olas del turbión:
Hasta el puerto de salud
guía tú mi embarcación.

2 Otro asilo, ¿dónde hallar?
indefenso acudo a ti;
Sólo pude desmayar,
porque mi peligro vi.
Solamente tú, Señor,
puedes dar consuelo y luz;
Vengo lleno de temor
a los pies de mi Jesús.

3 Cristo, encuentro todo en ti,
y no necesito más;
Débil, me pusiste en pie;
triste, ánimo me das.
Al enfermo das salud;
guías tierno al que no ve;
Con amor y gratitud
tu bondad ensalzaré.
