1 Ved al Cristo, Rey de gloria,
es del mundo el vencedor;
De la guerra vuelve invicto,
todos deben dar loor.

Coronadle, santos todos;
coronadle Rey de reyes;
Coronadle, santos todos;
coronad al Salvador.

2 Exaltadle, exaltadle;
ricos triunfos trae Jesús;
Entronadle en los cielos,
en la refulgente luz. [Coro]

3 Pecadores se burlaron,
coronando al Salvador;
Ángeles y santos danle
su riquísimo amor. [Coro]

4 Escuchad las alabanzas
que se elevan hacia él.
Victorioso reina el Cristo;
adorad a Emmanuel. [Coro]
