Morir sólo es resucitar

Representative Text

1 Morir sólo es resucitar
En la eternal mansión de amor,
Donde el mortal, del Salvador
Los ricos dones va a gozar.

2 La vida entera sólo es
Ligera sombra ante la luz
De la que ofrece el buen Jesús
A quien le serve sin doblez.

3 Morir sólo es resucitar
Para el discípulo, que fiel
S Cristo sigue y pone en Él
Su porvenir, sin vacilar.

4 Sus obras no pudieran, no,
Salvarlo, nunca, o su virtud;
Pues sólo da eternal salud
Quien en la cruz pornos murió.

5 Morir sólo es resucitar
Para el que en Ti creyó, Señor;
¥ es tal la gracia de tu amor
Que quien creyó, se ha de salvar.
