Del trono celestial

Representative Text

1 Del trono celestial
Al mundo descendi;
Sed, hambre, padecí
Cual mísero mortal.
Y todo fue por ti;
¿Qué has hecho tú por Mí?

2 Por darte la salud
Sufrí, pené, mori;
Tu sustituto fui
En dura esclavitud.
Y todo fue por ti;
¿Qué has hecho tú por Mí?

3 Del Padre celestial
Te traje bendición:
La eterna salvación,
La dicha perennal;
Mi vida di por ti.
¿Qué has hecho tú por Mí?
