Jesús Es La Luz Del Mundo

Representative Text

1 El mundo perdido en pecado se vio;
¡Jesús es la luz del mundo!
Mas en las tinieblas la gloria brilló,
¡Jesús es la luz del mundo!

Coro:
¡Ven a la luz; no quierres perder
gozo perfecto al amanecer!
Yo ciego fui, mas ya puedo ver,
¡Jesús es la luz del mundo!

2 Si ciego te encuentras en la oscuridad,
¡Jesús es la luz del mundo!
Te manda lavarte y vereas su verad,
¡Jesús es la luz del mundo! [Coro]

3 En día la noche se cambia con él,
¡Jesús es la luz del mundo!
Irás en la luz si a su ley eres fiel,
¡Jesús es la luz del mundo! [Coro]

4 Ni soles ni lunas el cielo tendrá,
¡Jesús es la luz del mundo!
La luz de su rostro lo iluminará,
¡Jesús es la luz del mundo! [Coro]
