Cuán tiernamente Jesús hoy nos llama

Representative Text

1 ¡Cuán tiernamente Jesús hoy nos llama!
Cristo a ti y a mí.
Él nos espera con brazos abiertos
Llama a ti y a mí.

Venid, venid,
Si estáis cansados, venid;
¡Cuán tiernamente nos está llamando!
¡Oh pecadores, venid!

2 ¿Por qué tememos si está abogando,
Cristo por ti y por mí?
Sus bendiciones está derramando,
Siempre por ti y por mí. [Coro]

3 El tiempo vuela, lograrlo conviene,
Cristo te llama a ti,
Vienen las sombras y viene la muerte,
Vienen por ti y por mí. [Coro]
