Escucha, Amigo, al Señor

Representative Text

1 Escucha, amigo, al Señor
Pues él te da perdón;
Te invita hoy tu Redentor,
En él hay salvación.

2 Por redimirte, el Salvador
Su sangre derramó;
Y en la cruz, con cruel dolor,
Tu redención obró.

3 Camino cierto es Jesús,
Ven y feliz serás,
Irás a la mansión de luz,
Descanso hallarás.

4 Ven con el santo pueblo fiel,
Dejando todo mal;
Así la paz de Dios tendrás,
Y gloria inmortal.
