Tentado, no cedas, ceder es pecar

Representative Text

1 Tentado, no cedas, ceder es pecar;
mejor es con Cristo luchar y triunfar.
¡Valor, pues, cristiano! domina tu mal,
Dios puede librarte de asalto 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; gobierna tu voz;
tu corazón guarda de ofensas a Dios. [Coro]

3 Fiel a la Palabra y enérgico sé;
en Cristo tu amigo pon toda tu fe.
Sé siempre honesto; de Dios es tu ser;
corona te espera, y vas a vencer. [Coro]
