Bellas Palabras de Vida

Representative Text

1 ¡Oh! cantádmelas otra vez,
bellas palabras de vida;
Hallo en ellas mi gozo y luz,

Sí, de luz y vida

Qué bellas son, qué bellas son!
Bellas palabras de vida;

2 Jesucristo a todos da
bellas palabras de vida;
Oye su dulce voz, mortal,

3 Grato el cántico sonará,
bellas palabras de vida;
Tus pecados perdonará,
bellas palabras de vida.
Sólo Cristo redeme,
vida nueva te ofrece. [Coro]
