Despliegue El Cristiano

Representative Text

1 Despliegue el cristiano su santa bandera,
Y muéstrela ufano del mundo a la faz;
Soldados valientes, el triunfo os espera:
Seguid vuestra lucha constante y tenaz.

2 Despliegue el cristiano su santa bandera,
Domine baluartes y almenas a mil;
La Biblia bendita conquista doquiera,
Y ante ella se incline la turba gentil.

3 Despliegue el cristiano su santa bandera,
Y luzca en el frente de audaz torreón:
El monte y el valle, la hermosa pradera,
Contemplen ondeando tan bello pendón.

4 Despliegue el cristiano su santa bandera.
Predique a los pueblos el Libro inmortal,
Presente a los hombres la luz verdadera
Que vierte ese claro, luciente fanal.

5 Despliegue el cristiano su santa bandera,
Y muéstrese bravo, batiéndose fiel;
Para él no habrá fosos, para él no hay barrera:
Que lucha a su lado el divino Emmanuel.
