Oí la voz del Salvador

Representative Text

1 Oí la voz del Salvador
Decir con tierno amor:
"¡Oh, ven a Mí, no temas más,
Cargado pecador!"
Tal como estaba, a mi Jesús
Cansado yo acudi;
Y luego dulce alivio y paz
Por fe en Él recibí.

2 Oí la voz del Salvador
Decir: "Venid, bebed;
Yo soy la fuente de salud
Que apaga toda sed."
Con sed de Dios, del vivo Dios,
Buscando a mi Emmanuel,
Lo hallé: mi sed Él apagó,
Y ahora vivo en Él.

3 Oí su dulce voz decir:
"Del mundo soy la luz;
Miradme a Mí, os salvaré;
Hay vida por mi cruz."
Mirando a Cristo, luego en Él
Mi norte y sol hallé:
Y en esa luz de vida y paz
Por siempre viviré.

Author: Horatius Bonar

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
