Estad por Cristo firmes

Representative Text

1 ¡Estad por Cristo firmes,
soldados de la cruz!
Alzad hoy la bandera,
en nombre de Jesús.
Es vuestra la victoria,
con él por Capitán;
Por él serán vencidas
las huestes de Satán.

2 ¡Estad por Cristo firmes!
os llama él a la lid;
¡Con él, pues, a la lucha,
soldados todos id!
Probad que sois valientes,
luchando contra el mal;
Es fuerte el enemigo,
mas Cristo es sin igual.

3 ¡Estad por Cristo firmes!
las fuerzas son de él;
El brazo de los hombres,
es débil y es infiel.
Vestíos la armadura,
velad en oración;
Deberes y peligros
demandan gran tesón.
