Obediente a Tu Mandato

Representative Text

1 Obediente a tu mandato
participa hoy tu grey
De tu cena, y con gozo
la recibe nuestra fe;
Tu dolor en el Calvario
y tu pena y gran amor
Anunciamos en tu nombre,
amantísimo Señor.

2 Recordando la tristeza
que afligió tu corazón,
Y la copa de amargura
que por todo pecador
En el Gólgota tomaste,
despreciando tu dolor;
Te pedimos que fervientes,
te sigamos con valor.

3 Gracias, oh Jesús, te damos
por tu infinito amor;
Gracias mil pues disfrutaos
tu clemencia y tu favor.
Tuya fue la cruz, mas nuestra
es la dicha y es la paz;
Tuya sea pues la gloria
hoy y por la eternidad.
