¡Cuán grande amor!

Representative Text

1 Que Cristo me haya salvado,
tan malo como yo fui,
Me deja maravillado,
pues él se entregó por mí.

¡Cuán grande amor! ¡Tan grande amor!
el de Cristo para mei;
¡Cuán grande amor! ¡Tan grande amor!
pues por él salvado fui.

2 Oró por mí en el huerto:
"No se haga mi voluntad".
Y todo aquel sufrimiento
causado fue por mi mal. [Coro]

3 Por mí se hizo pecado;
mis culpas su amor llevó.
En cruenta cruz fue clavado,
mas mi alma él rescató. [Coro]

4 Cuando al final con los santos
su gloria contemplaré,
Con gratitud y con cantos
por siempre le alabaré. [Coro]
