Mi vida di por ti

Representative Text

1 Mi vida di por ti,
mi sangre derramé;
Por ti inmolado fui,
por gracia te salvé;
Por ti, por ti inmolado fui,
¿Qué has dado tú por mí?
Por ti, por ti inmolado fui,
¿Qué has dado tú por mí?

2 Mi celestial mansión,
mi trono de esplendor,
Dejé por rescatar
al mundo pecador;
Si, todo yo dejé por ti,
¿Qué dejas tú por mí?
Si, todo yo dejé por ti,
¿Qué dejas tú por mí?

3 Reproches, aflicción
y angustias yo sufrí;
La copa amarga fue
que yo por ti bebí;
Reproches yo por ti sufrí,
¿Qué sufres tú por mí?
Reproches yo por ti sufrí,
¿Qué sufres tú por mí?

4 De mi celeste hogar,
te traigo el rico don
Del Padre Dios de amor,
la plena salvación;
Mi don de amor te traigo a ti,
¿Qué ofreces tú por mí?
Mi don de amor te traigo a ti,
¿Qué ofreces tú por mí?
