During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Padre en los cielos, con amor

Representative Text

1. Padre en los cielos, con amor
Ofreces vida al pecador.
Ante tu trono, en humildad,
Perdón pedimos, en tu bondad.

2. Verbo encarnado, a tu grey
Eres fiel Sacerdote, Rey.
Ante tu trono, en humildad,
Pedimos gracia, amor, piedad.

3. Consolador, tu aliento es
Divino Guía a nuestros pies.
Ante tu trono, en humildad,
Rogamos, "Haz hoy tu voluntad."

4. Padre, Hijo, Santo Espíritu,
Un Dios, Autor de la salud,
Ante tu trono, en humildad,
Damos loor a la Trinidad.
