Inmensa y sin Igual Piedad

Representative Text

1 ¡Inmensa y sin igual piedad!
Jesús murió por mí;
Y por mi culpa vil sufrió
La muerte en la cruz.

Acuérdate, Señor Jesús;
Acuérdate de mí;
Y por Tu muerte y Tu pasión,
¡Oh, ten piedad de mí!

2 Por la maldad que hice yo,
Murió el Redentor:
¡Oh qué divina compasión!
¡Qué infinito amor! [Coro]

3 Y tuvo que esconderse el sol
En negra confusión,
Al ver morir al Salvador
Por nuestra redención. [Coro]

4 ¡Amado Cristo!, no podré
Jamás pagar Tu amor;
Mas lo que tengo doy a Ti,
Tu siervo soy, Señor. [Coro]
