Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Antaŭtempul', tronanta en majesto

Full Text

1. Antaŭtempul', tronanta en majesto,
Vin gloros ĉiu voĉo kaj genu'.
Tra l' historio fluas la atesto
Pri via amo, beno kaj instru'.

2. Vi, sankta Patro, gvidis la infanojn
Dum la epokoj per la nub' kaj flam',
Vivajn tra maro kaj dezert'. Hosanojn
Danke ni levas en solena am'.

3. Sankta Jesuo, ho Savant', Ŝaloma
Princo, al vi ni ŝuldas pro la pac'.
Vi al sovaĝa miskonduto homa
Trudas trankvilon per pentiga grac'.

4. Sankta Spirito, Kiu ja en vero
Kreas la vivon per potenca spir',
El Vi al ni fluadis en rivero
Riĉo, prospero, sano kaj inspir'.

5. Di' Triunua, voĉe ni, kaj kore,
Laŭdas la benojn jam kronantajn nin.
Preĝe ni petas, benu plu favore,
Amu, kaj estru ĉiam kaj sen fin'!
