Por La Justicia De Jesús

Representative Text

1 Por la justicia de mi Dios, por sangre que Jesús vertió,
Alcanzo paz, poder, perdón, y cuanto bien me prometió.
Que sólo Cristo salva sé;
Segura base es de mi fe.
Segura base es de mi fe.

2 Así turbada no veré mi paz, su incomparable don;
Aunque Él un tiempo oculto esté, me dejará su bendición.
En mí no puede haber jamás
Ninguna base real de paz,
Ninguna base real de paz.

3 En la tormenta es mi sostén, el pacto que juró y selló;
Su amor es mi supremo bien, Su amor que mi alma redimió;
La roca eterna que me da
Base única que durará,
Base única que durará.
