En el huerto, arrodillado

Representative Text

1 En el huerto arrodillado
Con su espíritu angustiado
Ved al santo Redentor.
Negra noche lo circunda,
La tristeza su alma inunda
De conflicto y de dolor.

Sin beberlo el Salvador?
De la culpa es el tributo,

4 La salud nos asegura
Esta copa de amargura
Que bebe en Getsemaní.
Haz, Señor, que to adoremos,
Y tan sólo coloquemos
Siempre la confianza en Ti.
