De mil arpas y mil voces

Representative Text

1 De mil arpas y mil voces
Se alcen himnos de loor;
Cristo reina, el cielo goza,
Cristo reina, el Dios de amor,
Ved, su trono ocupa ya;
Cristo al mundo regirá.

2 ¡Rey de gloria! Reine siempre
Su divina potestad;
Nadie arranque de su mano
Los que son su propiedad.
Dicha tiene todo aquel
Que confia siempre en Él.

3 Apresura tu venida
En las nubes, ¡oh Señor!
Nuevos cielos, nueva vida,
Danos, cristo por tu amor.
Áureas arpas de tu grey,
"¡Gloria!," entonen a su rey.

Amén.
