Para siempre es su bondad

Representative Text

1 ¿Qué podemos ofrendar?
¿Qué presente digno dar?
Dediquemos hoy a él bienes,
vida, alma fiel;
Para siempre es su bondad;
al Señor magnificad.

2 De la nada nos formó,
y la vida él nos dio;
Él nos cuida en su bondad,
y nos guía en la verdad;
Para siempre es su bondad;
al Señor magnificad.
