1 Oh, hermanos, dad a Cristo, alabanzas mil,
Él la muerte ha vencido, y la tumba vil.

Cristo, por Tu gran victoria,
Me das vida a mí.
Vencedor, Tú, de la muerte.
¡Gloria doy a Ti!

2 En la cruz Él fue clavado por mí, pecador;
Por Su muerte Él se hizo nuestro Redentor. [Coro]

3 En la tumba sepultaron a mi Salvador;
Su presencia le ha quitado todo el terror. [Coro]

4 La potencia de la muerte Cristo derrotó;
Del sepulcro tenebroso Él se levantó.[Coro]
