De su trono, mi Jesús

Representative Text

1 De su trono mi Jesús
A morir aquí bajó,
Y clavado en una cruz,
Mis pecados Él quitó.

2 Bien me quiere el Salvador
Que sufrió por mi maldad:
Te bendigo, mi Señor,
Reconozco tu bondad.

3 Guarda fiel mi corazón,
Tú que en vela estás por mí;
Y haz que en tierna devoción
Viva siempre yo por Ti.
