Hoy venimos, cual hermanos

Representative Text

1 Hoy venimos, cual hermanos,
a la cena del Señor.
Acerquémonos, cristianos,
respirando tierno amor.

2 En memoria de su muerte
y la sangre que vertió,
Celebremos el banquete
que en su amor nos ordenó.

3 Recordando las angustias
que sufriera el Redentor,
Dividida está nuestra alma
entre el gozo y el dolor.

4 Nos da vida por su muerte,
gozo por su aflicción;
Alabemos al Cordero
por su eterna salvación.
