Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

359. Father of heaven, whose love profound

1 Father of heaven, whose love profound
a ransom for our souls has found;
before your throne we sinners bend —
to us your pardoning love extend.

2 Almighty Son, incarnate Word,
our prophet, priest, redeemer, Lord:
before your throne we sinners bend —
to us your saving grace extend.

3 Eternal Spirit, by whose breath
our soul is raised from sin and death;
before your throne we sinners bend —
to us your living power extend.

4 Jehovah - Father, Spirit, Son —
mysterious Godhead, Three-in-One,
before your throne we sinners bend —
grace, pardon, life to us extend.
