El Señor resucitó

Representative Text

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

2 El que al polvo se humilló, ¡Aleluya!
Vencedor se levantó; ¡Aleluya!
Cante hoy la cristiandad ¡Aleluya!
Su gloriosa majestad. ¡Aleluya!

3 Cristo que la cruz sufrió, ¡Aleluya!
Y en desolación se vio, ¡Aleluya!
Hoy en gloria celestial ¡Aleluya!
Reina vivo e inmortal. ¡Aleluya!

4 Cristo nuestro Salvador, ¡Aleluya!
De la muerte vencedor, ¡Aleluya!
Pronto vamos sin cesar ¡Aleluya!
Tus loores a cantar. ¡Aleluya!
