Voz de amor y de clemencia

Representative Text

1 Voz de amor y de clemencia
En el Gólgota sonó,
Y al oírla, con violencia
El calvario retembló.
"Consumado es,"
Fue la voz que Cristo dio.

2 Voz de escario, de ironía,
Vil pronuncia el hombre audaz,
Mientras Cristo en su agonía
Hace al sol nublar su faz.
"Consumado es,"
Fue la voz del Dios veraz.

3 Entre angustias y dolores
Sin amparo se encontró
El Señor de los señores,
El que al débil amparó.
"Consumado es,"
Y su espíritu entregó.

4 Ya el infierno está vencido,
Y la muerte es sin horror
Para el hombre redimido
Que confía en su Señor.
"Consumado es"
El rescate del amor.
