Cuando andamos con Dios

Representative Text

1 Cuando andemos con Dios,
escuchando su voz,
nuestra senda florida será:
Cumpliremos su Ley
porque es nuestro Rey,
y su amor siempre nos guiará.

Coro:
Obedecer, y confiar en Jesús,
es la senda marcada para andar en la luz.

2 Cuando Cristo murió
nuestro llanto enjugó;
proclamarle debemos doquier;
Gozarán del amor
del bendito Señor
los que humildes le entregan su ser. [Coro]

3 No podremos probar
sus delicias sin par
si seguimos mundano el placer;
Disfrutamos su amor
y divino favor
al ser fieles en obedecer. [Coro]
