Jesús, te necesito, Pues yo soy tan pecador

Representative Text

1 Jesús, te necesito,
Pues yo soy pecador;
Se siente el alma triste
Y muerto el corazón.
La fuente necesito
Do siempre puedo hallar
La sangre que vertida
Me da justicia y paz.

2 Jesús, te necesito,
Pues yo muy pore soy,
Y siendo peregrino
A ti, mi amparo, voy.
Tu amor yo necesito
Para alentar mi fe,
Guiar mis pasos firmes
Y al fin lograr tu bien.

3 Jesús, te necesito,
Amigo sin igual,
Que siempre simpatízas
Conmigo en el penar.
Tu corazón amante
Entiende mi ansiedad,
Mis pruebas, mis pesares,
Y laos compartirá.
