Firmes y adelante

Representative Text

1 ¡Firme y adelante,
Huestes de la fe,
Sin temor alguno,
Que Jesús nos ve!
Jefe soberano,
Cristo al frente va,
Y la regia enseña
Tremolando está.

Coro:
¡Firme y adelante,
Huestes de la fe,
Sin temor alguno,
Que Jesús nos ve!

2 Al sagrado nombre
De nuestro adalid.
Tiembla el enemigo
Y huye de la lid.
Nuestra es la victoria,
Dad a dios loor,
Y óigalo el averno
Lleno de pavor. [Coro]

3 Tronos y coronas
Puedan perecer;
De Jesús la iglesia
Fiel habrá de ser;
Nada en contra suya
Prevalecerá,
Porque la promesa
Nunca faltará.

4 ¡Muévete potente,
Pueblo del Señor!
Y de triunfo en triunfo
Marcha con valor.
Eres sólo un cuerpo,
Y uno es el Señor,
Una la esperanza
Y uno nuestro amor.
