Dulce Comunión

Representative Text

1 Dulce comunión la que gozo ya
en los brazos de mi Salvador;
¡Qué gran bendición en su paz me da!
¡Oh! yo siento en mí su tierno amor.

Libre, salvo, del pecado y del temor;
Libre, salvo, en los brazos de mi Salvador.

2 ¡Cuán dulce es vivir, cuán dulce es gozar!
en los brazos de mi Salvador;
Allí quiero ir y con él morar,
siendo objeto de su tierno amor. [Coro]

3 No hay que temer, ni que desconfiar,
en los brazos de mi Salvador;
Por su gran poder él me guardará
de los lazos del engañador. [Coro]
