Oh, Señor, procuro en vano

Oh, Señor, procuro en vano

Representative Text

1 Oh, Señor, procuro en vano
mi conducta reformar,
Pues ningún poder humano
santidad me puede dar.
Es mi vida de pecado
diaria ofensa para ti;
Pero mi alma ha confiado
en tu sangre carmesí.

2 En tu reino está el contento;
nada impuro allí entrará;
Sin el nuevo nacimiento
ningún alma lo verá.
Mira, pues, mi insuficiencia,
muestra en mí tu gran poder;
Manifiesta tu clemencia
y de nuevo hazme nacer.

3 Ven, Espíritu divino;
ven y escucha mi oración;
Ante ti mi frente inclino
por mi regeneración.
No vacilo en la esperanza;
he llegado a creer
Que la bienaventuranza
en el cielo he de tener.
