Tal como soy

Representative Text

1 Tal como soy de pecador,
sin más confianza que tu amor;
a tu llamada vengo ati,
¡Cordero de Dios, heme aquí!

2 Tal como soy, buscando paz,
en mi desgracia y mal tenaz,

¡Cordero de Dios, heme aquí!

3 Tal como soy, me acogerás;
perdón y alivio me darás,
pues tu promesa ya creí;
¡Cordero de Dios, heme aquí!

4 Tal como soy, tu compasión,
venció a toda oposición,
ya pertenezco sólo a ti;
¡Cordero de Dios, heme aquí!
