We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Ved al Cristo

Representative Text

1 Ved al Cristo, rey de gloria:
Es del mundo el vencedor;
De la guerra vuelve invicto,
Todos démosle loor.
Coronad al Salvador.

2 Exaltadle, sí, exaltadle;
Ricos triunfos trae Jesús;
Entronadle allá en los cielos
En la refulgente luz.
Coronad al Salvador.

3 Si los malos se burlaron,
Coronando al Salvador,
Hoy los ángeles y santos
Le proclaman su Señor.
Coronad al Salvador.

4 Escuchad las alabanzas,
Que se elevan hacia Él.
Victorioso reina el Cristo;
Adorad al Emmanuel.
Coronad al Salvador.
