Me guía él

Representative Text

1 Me guía él, con cuánto amor
me guía siempre mi Señor;
En todo tiempo puedo ver
con cuánto amor me guía él.

Coro:
Me guía él, me guía él,
con cuánto amor me guía él;
No abrigo dudas ni temor,
pues me conduce el buen Pastor.

2 En el abismo del dolor
o donde intenso brilla el sol,
En dulce paz o en lucha cruel,
con gran bondad me guía él. [Coro]

3 La mano quiero yo tomar
de Cristo y nunca vacilar,
Cumpliendo con fidelidad
su sabia y santa voluntad. [Coro]

4 Y la carrera al terminar,
el alba eterna al vislumbrar,
No habrá ni dudas ni temor,
pues me guiará mi buen Pastor. [Coro]
