Maravillosa Gracia

Representative Text

1 Maravillosa gracia vino Jesús a dar,
Más alta que los cielos, más honda que la mar,
Más grande que mis culpas clavadas en la cruz
Es la maravillosa gracia de Jesús.

Coro:
Inefable es la divina gracia, (la divina gracia);
Es inmensurable cual la mar, (la más profunda mar),
Fuente preciosa para el pecador, el pecador
(Como clara fuente, siempre suficiente A los pecadores rescatar).
Perdonando todos mis pecados (mis pecados todos)
Cristo me limpió de mi maldad (de mi maldad).
Alabaré su dulce nombre por la eternidad.

2 Maravillosa gracia, gracia de compasión,
Gracia que sacia el alma con plena salvación,
Gracia que lleva al cielo, gracia de paz y luz
Es la maravillosa gracia de Jesús. [Coro]

3 Maravillosa gracia llama con dulce voz,
Llámanos a ser hechos hijos de nuestro Dios;
Colma de su consuelo, nos llena de virtud,
Es la maravillosa gracia de Jesús. [Coro]
