Hijos del celeste Rey

Representative Text

1 Hijos del celeste rey,
Dulces cánticos alzad;
Al pastor de nuestra grey
Alabanzas entonad.

2 Sólo del benigno dios
Viene la felicidad;
Seguiremos de Él en pos,
Mostrarános su bondad.

3 En su templo se hallan paz,
Gracia, júbilo y salud,
Que a las almas dan solaz
Y disipan la inquietud.

4 Es Jesús el sumo bien;
Siempre en su favor confiad;
Preparónos en su Edén
Eternal felicidad.

5 Vuestros cantos, pues, alzad
A su trono con fervor,
Y homenaje tributad
A la gloria del Señor.

Amén.

He afterwards ministered in Dublin, and in the north of Ireland. He died in London, in 1755, and was buried in the Moravian Cemetery, Chelsea. He was the author of many hymns, some of which are to be found in every collection. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
