Cual la mar hermosa

Representative Text

1 Cual la mar hermosa es la paz de Dios,
fuerte y gloriosa, es eterna paz,
grande y perfecta, premio de la cruz,
fruto del Calvario, obra de Jesús.

Coro:
Descansando en Cristo,
siempre paz tendré;
en Jehová confiando,
nada temeré.

2 En el gran refugio de la paz de Dios,
nunca hay molestias, es perfecta paz;
nunca negra duda, pena ni pesar,
vejaciones crueles, pueden acosar. [Coro]

3 Toda nuestra vida cuidará Jesús;
Cristo nunca cambia, él es nuestra paz;
fuertes y seguros en el Salvador,
siempre moraremos en su grande amor. [Coro]

4 Oh Señor amado, tú nos das quietud,
de ti recibimos celestial salud;
haznos conocerte, te amaremos más;
sé tú nuestro dueño, Príncipe de paz. [Coro]
