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 triunfante celebrad,
glorioso vencedor.
Potente Rey de paz
el triunfo consumó,
Y por su muerte en la cruz
su grande amor mostró.

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