Representative Text

1 Ved los millones que entre las tinieblas
viven, perdidos, sin un Salvador.
¿Quién, quién irá las nuevas proclamando
que por Jesús Dios salva al pecador?

Coro:
Todo poder mi Dios me dio,
y a mis siervos mando yo:
"Id al mundo y proclamad el Evangelio,
y estoy con vosotros siempre".

2 "A mí venid", la voz divina llama:
clamad: "venid" en nombre de Jesús.
Para salvarnos de la muerte eterna
su vida él ofreció en la dura cruz. [Coro]

3 Que venga pronto el día tan glorioso,
en que los redimidos se unirán
En coro excelso, santo y jubiloso;
eternamente gloria a Dios darán. [Coro]
