Digno es el Cordero

Representative Text

1 Digno es el Cordero que inmolado fue
de tomar el reino, honra, gloria y prez;
Para abrir el libro nadie se encontró;
él fue solo digno: ¡Cante nuestra voz!

A Jesús loor, a Jesús loor,
a Jesús loor, porque él es digno;
a Jesús loor, a Jesús loor,
a Jesús loor, porque él es digno.

2 Digno es el Cordero que en la cruz murió
por llevar el mundo cerca de su Dios;
Y donde reinaba densa oscuridad,
él la luz del cielo vino a derramar. [Coro]

3 Digno es el Cordero, canten voces mil,
que la humana raza vino a redimir;
Digno es el Cordero: ¡Salvación a él!
y al que está en el trono, hoy y siempre ¡Amén! [Coro]
