!Oh Cristo! mi deseo A ti volando va

Representative Text

1 ¡Oh Cristo! Mi deseo
A Ti volando va;
Mi fe y mi confianza
Sustenta sin cesar,
¡Oh, dulce Dueño mío,
Amparo del mortal!
¡Oh, dulce Dueño mío,
Amparo del mortal!

2 Yo sé que Tú sufriste
La muerte por lavar
La culpa de los hombres,
Dejándoles tu paz:
Por eso en Ti confio,
Cordero celestial.
Por eso en Ti confío,
Cordero celestial.

3 ¡Oh, cristalina fuente!
¡Oh, limpio manantial!
Bendito Tú que ofreces
Consuelo sin cesar,
Que sanas las heridas
Y quitas la maldad,
Que sanas las heridas
Y quitas la maldad.

4 Jesús, ¡oh Dueño mío!,
Desciende, baja ya
En busca de los tuyos,
Que claman con afán
Por su pastor divino,
Eterno, celestial;
Por su pastor divino,
Eterno, celestial.
