El Señor resucitó

Representative Text

1 El Señor resucitó, ¡Aleluya!
Muerte y tumba ya venció, ¡Aleluya!
Con su fuerza y su virtud, ¡Aleluya!
Cautivó la esclavitud. ¡Aleluya!

2 El que al polvo se humilló, ¡Aleluya!
Con poder se levantó; ¡Aleluya!
Y a su eterna majestad, ¡Aleluya!
Cantará la cristiandad: ¡Aleluya!

3 Y el que tanto así sufrió, ¡Aleluya!
Y en desolación se vio, ¡Aleluya!
Hoy en gloria celestial, ¡Aleluya!
Reina vivo e immortal. ¡Aleluya!

4 Quien así su vida dio, ¡Aleluya!
Quien así nos redimió, ¡Aleluya!
Es la víctima pascual, ¡Aleluya!
Que remedia nuestro mal. ¡Aleluya!

5 Jesús, nuestro Salvador, ¡Aleluya!
De la muerte vencedor, ¡Aleluya!
En Ti haznos esperar, ¡Aleluya!
Y cantemos sin cesar: ¡Aleluya!
