Representative Text

1 Tal como soy de pecador,
Sin obra fianza que tu amor,
A tu llamado vengo a Ti:
Cordero de Dios, heme aquí.

2 Tal como soy, buscando paz,
En mi aflicción y mal tenaz

Cordero de Dios, heme aquí.

3 Tal como soy, con mi maldad,
Miseria, pena y ceguedad;
Pues hay remedio pleno en Ti:
Cordero de Dios, heme aquí.

4 Tal como soy me acogerás;
Perdón y alivio me darás;

Cordero de Dios, heme aquí.

5 Tal como soy, tu compasión
Quitado ha toda oposición;
Ya pertenezco todo a Ti:
Cordero de Dios, heme aquí.
