Todas las promesas

Representative Text

1 Todas las promesas del Señor Jesús
son apoyo poderoso de mi fe;
mientras luche aquí buscando yo su luz,
siempre en sus promesas confiaré.

Grandes, fieles,
las promesas que el Señor Jesús ha dado,
Grandes, fieles,
en ellas para siempre confiaré.

2 Todas las promesas para el hombre fiel,
el Señor en sus bondades cumplirá.
Y confiando, sé que para siempre en Él,
paz eterna el mundo gozará. [Estribillo]

3 Todas las promesas del Señor serán
gozo y fuerza en nuestra vida terrenal;
ellas en la dura lid nos sostendrán,
y triunfar podremos sobre el mal. [Estribillo]
