The Throne of Grace. Heb. 4. 16; 10. 19-22

S. Medley         C.M.

1
Dear Lord! to us assembled here
Reveal thy smiling face,
While we, by faith, with love and fear,
Approach the throne of grace.

2
Thy house is called the house of prayer,
A solemn sacred place;
O let us now thy presence share,
While at the throne of grace.

3
With holy boldness may we come,
Though of a sinful race,
Thankful to find there yet is room
Before the throne of grace.

4
Our earnest, fervent cry attend,
And all our faith increase,
While we address our heavenly Friend
Upon the throne of grace.

5
[His tender pity and his love
Our every fear will chase;
And all our help, we then shall prove,
Comes from the throne of grace.]

6
Dear Lord, our many wants supply;
Attend to every case;
While humbled in the dust we lie,
Low at the throne of grace.

7
We bless thee for thy word and laws;
We bless thee for thy peace;
And we do bless thee, Lord, because
There is a throne of grace.
