1 Gozo la santa Palabra leer,
Cosas preciosas allí puedo ver,
Y sobre todo, que el gran Redentor,
Es de los niños es tierno Pastor.

Con alegría yo cantaré,
Al Redentor, tierno Pastor,
Que en el Calvario por mí murió,
Sí, sí, por mí murió.

2 Me ama Jesús, pues su vida entregó,
Por mi salud y de niños habló;
Dejad los niños que vengan a mí,
Para salvarlos mi sangre vertí. [Coro]

3 Si alguien pregunta que cómo lo sé;
Busca a Jesús, pecador, le diré.
Por su palabra que tienes aquí,
Aprende y siente que te ama a ti. [Coro]
