Alabanzas dad a Cristo

Representative Text

1 Alabanzas dad a Cristo,
ensalzad al Redentor;
Tributadle, santos todos,
grande gloria y loor.

Cuando estemos en gloria,
en presencia de nuestro Redentor,
A una voz la historia diremos
del gran Vencedor.

2 La victoria es segura
a las huestes del Señor;
¡Oh, pelead con la mirada
puesta en el Protector! [Coro]

3 ¡Adelante en la lucha,
oh soldados de la fe!
Por su gracia triunfaremos,
¡gloria a Cristo, nuestro Rey! [Coro]
