Dime la antigua historia

Representative Text

1 Dime la antigua historia
Del celestial favor,
De Cristo y de su gloria,
De Cristo y su amor;
Cuéntala con llaneza
Tan propia a la niñez
Porque es mi mente flaca
Y anhela sencillez.

Dime la antigua historia
Cuéntame la victoria,
Háblame de la gloria
De Cristo y de su amor.

2 Dime tan dulce historia
Con tono claro y fiel:
Murió Jesús y salvo
Yo quiero ser por Él;
Dime esta historia siempre,
Si en tiempo de aflicción
A mi alma tú deseas
Traer consolación. [Coro]
