Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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.
