Tu vida, oh Salvador

Representative Text

1 Tu vida, ¡oh Salvador!
Diste por mí;
Y nada quiero yo
Negarte a Ti.
Rendida mi alma está;
Servirte ansía ya,
Y algún tributo dar
De amor a Ti.

2 Al Padre sin cesar
Ruegas por mí,
Y en mi debilidad
Confio en Ti;
Quiero mi cruz llevar,
Tu nombre proclamar,
Y cantos entonar
De amor a Ti.

3 A estar conmigo ven,
Vive Tú en mí;
Y cada día haré
Algo por Ti:
Al pobre algún favor,
Curar algún dolor:
Y así mostrar tu amor
Algo por Ti.

4 Cuanto yo tengo y soy
Lo entrego a Ti:
¡En gozo o aflicción
Tuyo hasta el fin!
Y cuando vea tu faz,
En gloria donde estás
Siempre me dejarás
Servirte a Ti.
