Refugio de este pecador

Representative Text

1 Refugio de este pecador,
Iré, Jesús, a Ti;
En las riquezas de tu amor
Acuérdate de mí.

2 Confieso que culpable soy,
Confieso que soy vil,
Empero por Ti salvo estoy,
Seguro en tu redil.

3 Auxíliame, Señor Jesús,
Libértame del mal,
En mí derrama de tu luz
Bellísimo raudal.

4 En toda mi necesidad
Escucha mi clamor;
Revísteme de santidad
Y cólmame de amor.
