Resucitó Jesús el Señor

Representative Text

¡Aleluya! ¡Aleluya! ¡Aleluya!

1 Resucitó ya Cristo el Señor,
de infierno y muerte ya es vencedor;
suenen pues himnos en su loor,

2 Huyen las sombras y el dolor;
deja la tumba el Salvador;
démosle gloria y todo honor.

3 Por sus heridas el Redentor
no libra hoy de pena y temor;
él del sepulcro es conquistador.

4 Nuestro rescate Cristo pagó;
al cielo en trada él nos abrió;
su gracia libre nos concedió.

5 Suenen pues himnos en su loor,
y celebremos su gran amor:
¡Cristo ha triunfado! ¡Gloria al Señor!
