Mi mano ten, Señor, pues yo soy débil

Mi mano ten, Señor, pues yo soy débil

Translator: Thomas M. Westrup; Author: Fanny Crosby
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Mi mano ten, Señor, pues yo soy débil,
Sin Ti no puedo riesgos afrontar;
Tenla, Señor: mi vida el gozo llene
Al verme libre así de todo azar.

2 Mi mano ten: permite que me animen
El regocijo y la esperanza en Ti;
Tenla Señor, y compasivo impide
Que caiga en mal cual otra vez caí.

3 Mi mano ten: mi senda es tenebrosa
Si no la alumbra tu radiante faz;
Por fe si alcanzo a percibir tu gloria,
¡Cuán grande gozo! ¡Cuán profunda paz!
