Wonderful Words of Life

Representative Text

1 Sing them over again to me,
Wonderful words of life;
Let me more of their beauty see,
Wonderful words of life;
Words of life and beauty
Teach me faith and duty.

Refrain:
Beautiful words, wonderful words,
Wonderful words of life;
Beautiful words, wonderful words,
Wonderful words of life.

2 Christ, the blessed one, gives to all
Wonderful words of life;
Sinner, list to the loving call,
Wonderful words of life;
All so freely given,
Wooing us to heaven. [Refrain]

3 Sweetly echo the gospel call,
Wonderful words of life;
Offer pardon and peace to all,
Wonderful words of life;
Jesus, only Savior,
Sanctify forever. [Refrain]

1 ¡Oh, cantádmelas otra vez,
bellas palabras de vida;
hallo en ellas mi gozo y luz,
bellas palabras de vida.
Sí, de luz y vida,
son sostén y guía.

Estribillo:
¡Qué bellas son, qué bellas son!
Bellas palabras de vida.
¡Qué bellas son, qué bellas son!
Bellas palabras de vida.

2 Jesucristo a todos da
bellas palabras de vida;
oye su dulce voz, mortal,
bellas palabras de vida.
Bondadoso te salva,
y al cielo te llama. [Estribillo]

3 Grato el cántico sonará,
bellas palabras de vida;
tus pecados perdonará,
bellas palabras de vida.
Sí, de luz y vida,
son sostén y guía. [Estribillo]
