¡Bendiciones, cuántas tienes!

Representative Text

1 Cuando combatido por la adversidad
creas ya perdida tu felicidad,
Mira lo que el cielo para ti guardó;
cuenta las riquezas que el Señor te dio.

¡Bendiciones, cuántas tienes ya!
Bendiciones, Dios te manda más;
Bendiciones, te sorprenderás
Cuando veas lo que Dios por ti hará.

2 ¿Andas agobiado por algún pesar?
¿Duro te parece esa cruz llevar?
Cuenta las promesas del Señor Jesús,
y de las tinieblas nacerá la luz. [Coro]

3 Cuando de otros veas la prosperidad
y tus pies te lleven tras de su maldad,
Cuenta las riquezas que tendrás por fe
donde el oro es polvo que hollará tu pie. [Coro]
