Representative Text

1 Un nombre existe que escuchr me agrada,
Y hablar me place del valor que encierra;
No hay otro nombre que en dulzura iguale

2 Él testifica del amor sublime
De quien muriendo libertad me ha dado,
Siendo su sangre redención perfecta
Por el pecado.

3 Que hay un amante corazón, me dice,
Que sentir puede mi dolor profundo;
Cual Él quien pueda compartir mis penas,
No hay en el mundo.

4 Él regocija mi doliente pecho,
Él de mis ojos desvanece el llanto,
Y dice al alma que confíe siempre
Libre de espano.

5 ¡Jesús, el nombre que escuchar me agrada!
¿Cuál de los santos, el valor que encierra
Nombre tan dulce,referir podría
Sobre la tierra?
