Cristo es mi dulce Salvador

Representative Text

1 Cristo es mi dulce Salvador,
mi bien, mi paz, mi luz;
Mostróme su infinito amor
muriendo en dura cruz.
Cuando estoy triste encuentro en él
consolador y amigo fiel;
Consolador, amigo fiel, es Jesús.

2 Cristo es mi dulce Salvador,
su sangre me compró;
Con sus heridas y dolor,
perfecta paz me dio.
Dicha inmortal allá tendré,
con Cristo siempre reinaré,
Dicha inmortal allá tendré con Jesús.

3 Cristo es mi dulce Salvador,
mi eterno Redentor;
¡Oh! nunca yo podré pagar
la deuda de su amor.
Le seguiré, pues, en la luz;
no temeré llevar su cruz;
No temeré llevar la cruz de Jesús.

4 Cristo es mi dulce Salvador,
por él salvado soy,
La Roca de la Eternidad,
en quien seguro estoy.
Gloria inmortal allá tendré,
con Cristo siempre reinaré;
Gloria inmortal allá tendré con Jesús.
