Tentado, no cedas, ceder es pecar

Representative Text

1 Tentado, no cedas: ceder es pecar;
Mejor te seria luchando triunfar;
¡Valor!, pues, no temas; combate tú el mal;
Dios quiere librarte del yugo mortal.

En Jesús, pues, confía;
En sus brazos tu alma
Hallará dulce clama;
Él te hará vencedor.

2 Evita el pecado, procura agradar
A Dios a quien debes por siempre ensalzar;
No manche tus labios impúdica voz,
Preserva tu vida de ovensas a Dios. [Coro]

3 Amante, benigno y enérgico sé;
En Cristo, tu amigo, pan toda tu fe;
Veraz sea tu dicho, de Dios es tu ser;
Corona te espera, y vas a vencer. [Coro]
