1 Del santo amor de Cristo que no tendrá igual,
De su divina gracia, sublime y eternal;
De su misericordia, inmensa como el mar,
Y cual los cielos alta, con gozo he de cantar.

Coro:
El amor de mi Señor,
Grande y dulce es más y más;
Rico e inefable,
Nada es comparable,
Al amor de mi Jesús.

2 Cuando él vivió en el mundo la gente lo siguió,
Y todas sus angustias en él depositó;
Entonces, bondadoso, su amor brotó en raudal,
Incontenible, inmenso, sanando todo mal. [Coro]

3 El puso en los ojos del ciego nueva luz,
La eterna luz de vida que brilla en la cruz;
Y dio a las almas todas la gloria de su ser,
Al impartir su gracia, su Espíritu y poder. [Coro]

4 Su amor, por las edades, del mundo es el fanal,
Que marca esplendoroso la senda del ideal;
Y el paso de los ańos la hará más dulce y más,
Precioso al dar al alma su incomparable paz. [Coro]
