¿Vives triste y angustiado?

Representative Text

1 ¿Vives triste y angustiado?
¿Buscas tú solaz?
"Ven a Mí," te dice Cristo,

2 ¿Qué señales hay que indiquen

Y en sus pies.

3 ¿Hay corona que le adorne
Su cabeza al rey?

4 Si le busco, si le sigo,
¿Cuál será su don?

5 Si le pido que me salve,

6 ¿Hoy, por fe, la vida eterna
Me ha. de dar a mí?
Su Palabra te responde:
"Sí, hoy, sí."
