Según tu dicho y voluntad

Representative Text

1 Según tu dicho y voluntad
Que en gratitud oí,
Me acordaré, mí Redentor,
Me acordaré de Ti.

2 Tu cuerpo herido a mi alma es
Divino pan aquí,
Y con la copa de tu amor
Me acordaré de Ti.

3 ¿La angustia cruel podré olvidar
Que en el Getsemaní
Sufriste Tú, mi Redentor?
¿Podré olvidarte así?

4 Y cuando el Gólgota al mirar
La cruz contemple allí,
De Dios Cordero, Salvador,
Me acordaré de Ti.

5 Me acordaré de tu dolor,
Y de tu amor por mí;
Y mientras viva, ¡oh Señor!,
Me acordaré de Ti.

6 Y cuando desfallezca al fin
Y llegue a sucumbir,
Jesús, que en gloria eterna estás,
Acuérdate de mí.
