Representative Text

1 Hay un lugar do quiero estar
Muy cerca de mi Redentor;
Allí podré yo descansar
Al fiel amparo de su amor.

2 Muy cerca de mi Redentor

Y allí ya nada temeré.

3 Quitarme el mundo no podrá

Jesús amante me dará
La más segura protección.

4 Ni dudas ni temor tendré
Estando cerca de Jesús;
Cercado siempre me veré
De los fulgores de su luz.
