A Cristo coronad

Representative Text

1 A Cristo coronad,
divino Salvador;
Sentado en alta majestad
es digno de loor;
Al Rey de gloria y paz
loores tributad,
Y bendecid al Inmortal
por toda eternidad.

2 A Cristo coronad,
Señor de nuestro amor;
Al Rey triunfante celebrad,
glorioso vencedor;
Potente Rey de paz,
el triunfo consumó,
Y por su muerte de dolor
su grande amor mostró.

3 A Cristo coronad,
Señor de vida y luz;
Con alabanzas proclamad
los triunfos de la cruz;
A él solo adorad,
Señor de salvación;
Loor eterno tributad
de todo corazón.
