El M'a Condus

Representative Text

1 El m’a condus, ce glorie
Cuvinte de mângâiere,
Ori undeaşi fi, oriceaşi face,
Mâna Domnului mă duce.

El mă duce, mă conduce,
Cu braţele I puternice;
Lui voiu urma cu credintă
Căci mâna Lui ma conduce.

2 Doamneţi dau mâna mea’n a Ta,
Nici când nu mă voiu întristà,
Iţi mulţumesc pentru toate,
Căci mâna Ta mă conduce. [Refren]

3 Iar când al meu lucru sfârşesc
Şi biruinţă dobândesc;
Nici de moarte nu mă tem chiar,
Căci prin Iordan mă trece’n dar. [Refren]
