131. Father of heaven, whose love profound

1 Father of heaven whose love profound
a ransom for our souls hath 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
mysterious Godhead, Three in One,
before your throne we sinners bend;
to us your quickening power extend.

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