Representative Text

1 Gozo me de la Palabra leer;

sí, sí, por mí murió.

2 Me ama Jesús, pues por mí murió,
y de su amor a los niños habló:
“Dejad que vengan los niños 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,
puedes saber que te ama a ti”. [Coro]
