Mi fe descansa en ti

Representative Text

1 Mi fe descansa en Ti,
Cordero, que por mi
Fuiste a la cruz:
Escucha mi oración,
Dame tu bendición,
Llena mi corazón
Tu santa luz.

2 Tu gracia en mi alma pon,
Y guarde el corazón
Tu sumo amor.
Tu sangre carmesí
Deiste en la cuz por mí,
¡Que viva para Ti,
Oh Salvador!

3 A ruda lid iré
Y pruebas hallaré;
Mi guía sé:
Líbrame de ansiedad,
Guárdame en santidad,
Y por la eternidad
Te alabaré.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact.
