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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Tu reino amo, O Dios

Representative Text

1 Tu reino amo, ¡oh Dios!,
Tu casa de oración;
Y al pueblo que en Jesús halló
Completa redención.

2 Tu iglesia, mi Señor;
Su templo; su ritual;
La iglesia que guiando vas
Con mano paternal.

3 Por ella mi oración,
Mis lágrimas de amor,
Y mis cuidados y mi afán
Por ella son, Señor.

4 Un gozo sin igual
Me causa en ella estar;
Pues siempre allí tu comunión
Anhelo disfrutar.

5 Yo sé que durará,
Mi Dios, cual tu verdad;
Y victoriosa llegará
A Ti en la eternidad.
