Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Siente el alma puros goces

Representative Text

1 Siente el alma puros goces,
Al oir
Repetir
Celestiales voces;
"¡La salud os ha venido!"
Oíd cantar

"¡Cristo ha nacido!"

2 Oíd la voz del tierno niño

Dice con cariño:
"¡Los dolores deja, hermano,
A Miven,

A admirar
El sin par portento!
A Él amemos, que nos ama;
Y su amor,
El fulgor
De su estrella aclama.
