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.
