Jesús, yo he prometido

Representative Text

1 Jesús, yo he prometido
Servirte con amor;
Concédeme tu gracia,
Mi amigo y Salvador.
No temeré la lucha
Si Tú a mi lado estás,
Ni perderé el camino
Si Tú guiando vas.

2 El mundo está my cerca,
Y abunda tentación;
Muy suave es el engaño
Y es necia la pasión;
Ven Tú, Jesús, más cerca
Mostrando tu piedad,
Y escuda al alma mía
De toda iniquidad.

3 Y si mi mente vaga
Ya incierta, ya veloz,
Concédeme que escuche,
Jesús, tu clara voz:
Anímame si dudo;
Inspírame también;
Repréndame, si temo
En todo hacer el bien.

4 Jesús, Tú has prometido
A todo aquel que va
Siguiendo tus pisadas,
Que al cielo llegará.
Sosténme en el camino,
Y al fin con dulce amor
Trasládame a tu gloria,
Mi amigo y Salvador.

Amén.
