Hay una fuente sin igual

Representative Text

1 Hay un fuente sin igual
De sangre de Emmanuel,
En donde lava cada cual

2 El malhechor se convirtió
Muriendo en una cruz,
Al ver la fuente en que lavó
Sus culpas por Jesús.

3 Y yo también, cuan malo soy,
Lavarme allí podré;
Y en tanto que en el mundo estoy
Su gloria cantaré.

4 Tu sangre nunca perderá,
¡Oh Cristo!, su poder,
Y sólo en ella así podrá
Tu iglesia salva ser.

5 Desde que aquella fuente vi,
Mi tema sólo fue
Tu redentor amor, y así
Cantando moriré.

6 Después cuando en la tumba ya
Mi lengua muda esté,
Canción más dulce y noble habrá
Que en gloria cantaré.
