1 ¡Oh! soldados, en los cielos
Ved la enseña ya;
Cristo viene, nuestro el triunfo,
No dudéis, será.

2 ¡Firmes, firmes! yo voy pronto,
Clama el Salvador;
Estaremos por su gracia,
Firmes, con valor.

3 Nada importa nos asedien
Con rugiente afán,
Las legiones aguerridas
Que ordenó Satán.

4 Sin descanso ruda sigue
La furiosa lid;
¡Oh! soldados, ya cercano
Ved al adalid.

5 Viene Cristo con potencia,
A buscar su grey;
Pues, soldados, ¡aleluya!,
¡Gloria a nuestro Rey!
