De Jesús cordero soy

Representative Text

1 De Jesús cordero soy,
Siempre tras mi dueño voy;
Como buen pastor me guía,
Toda mi alma en Él confía,
Porque su favor me da;
Nada, pues, me faltará.

2 Por mi nombre me llamó,
Y su voz conozco yo.
Me protege el fiel cayado;
Buenos pastos Él me ha dado,
Claras fuentes en mi sed.
¡Bueno es Él! Gustad y ved!

3 Siempre así yo alegre estoy,
¡Qué feliz cordero soy!
Luego de estos bellos días,
A su reino de alegrias
Mi alma, ¡oh ángeles!, llevad.
¡Grande es mi felicidad!
