Cristo está buscando obreros

Representative Text

1 Cristo está buscando obreros*
hoy que quieran ir con Él;
¿Quién dirá: "Señor contigo voy,
quiero serte fiel?"

Oh, Señor, es cha la labor,
y obreros* faltan ya;
danos luz, ardiente fe y valor,
y obreros* siempre habrá.

2 Cristo quiere mensajeros**
hoy que anuncien su verdad;
¿Quién dirá: "Señor, aquí es toy,
haré tu voluntad?" [Estribillo]

3 Hay lugar si quieres trabajar
de Cristo en la labor;
puedes de su gloria al mundo hablar,
de su bondad y amor. [Estribillo]

*obreras **mensajeras
