We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Dulce Comunión

Representative Text

1 Dulce comunión la que gozo ya
En los brazos de mi Salvador.
¡Qué gran bendición en su paz me da!
¡Oh! yo siento en mí su tierno amor.

Libre, salvo del pecado y del temor,
Libre, salvo, en los brazos de mi Salvador.

2 ¡Cuán dulce es vivir, cuán dulce es gozar
En los brazos de mi Salvador!
Allí quiero ir y con él morar,
Siendo objeto de su tierno amor. [Coro]

3 No hay de temer ni que desconfiar,
En los brazos de mi Salvador.
Por su gran poder él me guardará
De los lazos del engañador. [Coro]
