Por fe contemplo redención

Representative Text

1 Por fe contemplo redención,
la fuente carmesí.
Jesús nos da la salvación;
su vida dio por mí.

La fuente sin igual hallé,
de vida y luz el manantial;
¡Oh, gloria a Dios,
me limpia a mí, me limpia a mí.

2 Mi vida entrego a mi Jesús;
las dudas él quitó;
Mi alma goza en su luz;
mis deudas él pagó. [Coro]

3 ¡Cuán inefable gozo es
saber que salvo soy!
Mi Rey aquí es mi Jesús;
al cielo sé que voy. [Coro]

4 ¡Oh, gracia excelsa de mi Dios!
Profundo es el amor
De mi Jesús, divina luz,
Cordero redentor. [Coro]

As a young girl Phoebe Palmer Knapp (b. New York, NY, 1839; d. Poland Springs, ME, 1908) displayed great musical talent; she composed and sang children’s song at an early age. The daughter of the Methodist evangelist Walter C. Palmer, she was married to John Fairfield Knapp at the age of sixteen. Her husband was a founder of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, and after his death, she shared her considerable inherited wealth with various charitable organizations. She composed over five hundred gospel songs, of which the tunes for “Blessed Assurance” and “Open the Gates of the Temple” are still popular today. Bert Polman Go to person page >
