483. Father of heaven, whose love profound

1 Father of heaven, whose love profound
a ransom for our souls has found,
before your throne we sinners bend,
to us your pardoning love extend.

2 Almighty Son, incarnate Word,
our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord,
before your throne we sinners bend,
to us your saving grace extend.

3 Eternal Spirit, by whose breath
our souls are raised from sin and death,
before your throne we sinners bend,
to us your quickening power extend.

4 Jehovah -- Father, Spirit, Son --
mysterious Godhead, Three in One,
before your throne we sinners bend,
grace, pardon, life to us extend.
