1 Padre, ¿puede haber perdón
Para mí tan pecador?
¿Puede hallar mi corazón
Los consuelos de tu amor?

2 Sólo miro en derredor
En mi negra soledad
El abismo aterrador
Do me arroja mi maldad.

3 Mucho tiempo resistí
Y tu gracia desprecié,
Pero ahora encuentro en Ti
Esa paz que rechacé.

4 Mientras pueda aquí vivir,
Es mi fiel resolución
Sólo a Ti, Señor, servir
Con sincero corazón.

Amén.

GOWER'S LITANY

Try singing the hymn in true litany style: have a soloist or…
