Me guía él

Representative Text

1 Me guía Cristo con su amor;
Me guía siempre mi Señor;
Él me dirige a serle file,
¡Con cuánto amor me guía Él!

Coro:
Me guía Él, me guía Él.
¡Con cuánto amor me guía Él!
No abrigo dudas mi temor,
Pues me conduce el buen pastor.

2 En las trite zas y el dolor
Me da consuelo mi Señor;
En dulce paz o en lucha cruel,
Con gran bondad me guía Él. [Coro]

3 Tu mano quiero yo tomar,
Señor Jesús, y no dudar,
Pues sólo quien te sigue fiel
Podrá decir: "Me guía Él." [Coro]

4 Y mi carrera al terminar
Y ya mis ojos al cerrar,
No habrá en mi corazón temor
Pues me guiará mi buen pastor. [Coro]
