WLP (W758) Tu has venido a la orilla

You have come down to the lake

Piano     PARTS

Tu has venido a la orilla,
no has buscado, a sabios ni a ricos,
tan solo quieres que yo te siga.

Jesús, me has mirado a los ojos,
sonriendo, has dicho mi nombre,
en la arena he dejado mi barca,
junto a ti buscaré otro mar.

Tu, sabes bien lo que tengo,
en mi barca no hay oro ni espada,
tan solo redes y mi trabajo.

Tu, necesitas mis manos,
mi cansancio que a otros descanse,
amor que quiera seguir amando.

Tu, Pesacador de otros lagos,
ansia eterna, de almas que esperan,
amigo bueno, que asi me llamas.

You have come down to the lakeshore
Seeking neither the wise nor the wealthy,
But only asking for me to follow.

O Jesus, you have looked into my eyes,
Kindly smiling, you've called out my name.
On the sand I've abandoned my small boat;
Now with you, I will seek other seas.

You know full well what I have, Lord;
Neither treasure nor weapons for conquest,
Just these my fishnets and will for working.

You need my hands, my exhaustion,
Working love for the rest of the weary,
A love that's willing to go on loving.

You who have fished other waters;
You, the longing of souls that are yearning;
O loving Friend, you have come to call me.
