Representative Text

1 Como ovejas celebramos,
¡Oh Jesús!, tu gran favor,
Pues nosotros, descarriados,
Anduvimos sin tu amor,
De tus pastos abundantes

Al buen prado, a apacentarnos,
Nos llevaste con tu amor;
Para ser de tu rebaño
Nos guiaste, buen Pastor.

3 La voz tuya conocemos
Cuando llamas, ¡oh Pastor!
Tú nos das los pastos verdes
Y nos guardas con amor;
En tu seno reclinados
Reposamos, buen Pastor.

4 Las ovejas en tu mano
Nada temen, buen Pastor;
En tu aprisco las abrigas,
Las defiendes con amor.
Sólo en Ti nos refugiamos,
¡Oh Jesús, oh buen Pastor!
