Confío yo en Cristo

Representative Text

1 Confío yo en Cristo
Que en una cruz murió;
Por esa muerte limpio
De culpas quedo yo.
Con sangre tan preciosa
Me lava el Redentor:
La derramó copiosa
Por mí el buen Salvador.

2 Me cubre su justicia
De plena perfección,
Jesús es mi delicia;
Jesús, mi salvación.
Oh Cristo!, en Ti descanso,
Reposo me darás;
Seguro voy marchando
Al cielo donde estás.

3 A disfrutar me invitas
Contigo, mi Señor,
Delicias infinitas
Y celestial amor,
Espero yo mirarte,
Oir tu dulce voz;
Espero yo cantarte:
¡Mi Salvador, mi Dios!

Author: Horatius Bonar

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >

Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >

MUNICH (Mendelssohn)

MUNICH has a colorful history. Traces of it run as far back as 1593 in the Dresden, Germany, Gesangbuch in conjunction with the text 'Wir Christenleut." A version from a Meiningen Gesangbuch (1693) is still used in Lutheranism for "O Gott, du frommer Gott." Felix Mendelssohn's adaptation of that tun…
