The Ground and Foundation of Prayer. Heb. 7. 25

S. Medley                C.M.

1
Wherewith shall we approach the Lord,
And bow before his throne?
By trusting in his faithful word,
And pleading Christ alone.

2
The blood, the righteousness, and love
Of Jesus, will we plead;
He lives within the vail above,
For us to intercede.

3
Sure ground, and sure foundation too,
We find in Jesus’ name;
Herein we every blessing view,
And every favour claim.

4
Then let his name for ever be
To us supremely dear;
Our only, all-prevailing plea,
For all our hope is there.

5
This is the name the Father loves
To hear his children plead;
And all such pleading he approves,
And blesses them indeed.
