Dejo el mundo y sigo a Cristo

Representative Text

1 Dejo el mundo, y sigo a Cristo
porque el mundo pasará,
Mas su amor, amor bendito,
por los siglos durará.

Coro:
¡Oh, qué gran misericordia!
¡Oh, de amor, sublime don!
¡Plenitud de vida eterna,
prenda viva de perdón!

2 Dejo el mundo, y sigo a Cristo;
paz y gozo en él tendré,
Y al mirar que va conmigo
yo feliz caminaré. [Coro]

3 Dejo el mundo, y sigo a Cristo;
su sonrisa quiero ver
Como luz que mi camino
haga aquí resplandecer. [Coro]

4 Dejo el mundo, y sigo a Cristo,
acogiéndome a su cruz,
Y después iré a verle
cara a cara en plena luz. [Coro]
