Tu voluntad, Jesús

Representative Text

1 Tu voluntad, Jesús,
Se cumpla siempre en mí.
Confiando en tu bondad,
Me entrego todo a Ti.
En medio de la paz
O en medio del dolor
Ningún temor tendré:
Me cercará tu amor.

2 Tu voluntad, Jesús,
Haré sin vacilar;
Quitaste mi maldad,
Me harás contigo andar.
Lloraste Tú también:
Por eso a Ti vendré;
Tú eres mi pastor,
Mi amigo, mi sostén.

3 Tu voluntad, Jesús,
Gustoso acataré:
A tus preceptos fiel
Hasta el morir seré.
No quiero aquí trazar
Mi senda sino en Ti:
Jesús, tu voluntad
Se cumpla siempre en mí.
