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.

Preste oídos el humano

Representative Text

1 Preste oídos el humano
A la voz del Salvador;
Regocijese el que siente
El pecado abrumador:
Ya resuena el Evangelio
De la tierra en la ancha faz.
UY de gracia ofrece al hombre
El perdón, consuelo y paz.

2 Vengan todos los que sufran,
Los que sientan hambre o sed,
Los que débiles se encuentren
De este mundo a la merced:
En Jesús hay pronto auxilia,
Hay hartura y bienestar,
Ha salud y fortaleza,
Cual ninguno puede dar.

3 Vengan cuantos se acongojan
Por lograr con que vestir,
Y a su afán tan sólo rinden
Servidumbre hasta el morir:
Un vestido hay más precioso,
Blanco, puro y eternal;
Es Jesús quien da a las almas
Ese manto celestial.

4 ¿Por qué en rumbo siempre incierto
Vuestra vida recorréis?
A Jesús venid, mortales,
Que muy cerca le tenéis:
Él es vida en tierra y cielo,
Y el exceso de su amor
Os mejora la presente
Y os reserva otra mejor.
