Contigo haz que yo quede

Representative Text

1 Contigo haz que yo quede,
Señor, en firme fe:
Quitarme nadie pede
De Ti, doquiera esté.
Que nunca el alma mía
Sucumba a la maldad;
Sé Tú mi luz y guía
En esta oscuridad.

2 Señor Jesús mi vida,
Consuelo y protección,
En Ti halló refugio
Mi pobre corazón;
Pues Tú me has redimido,
Tu cruz me rescató;
La sangre que has vertido
Mi salvación logró.

3 Mi débil fe haz fuerte,
Espíritu sin par.
Contigo aun en la muerte
Anhelo yo quedar;
En mi última agonia,
Señor, me alentarás;
Tus ángeles envia:
Condúceme a la paz.
