The Throne of Grace. Heb. 4. 16; John 14. 13, 14

J. Newton             S.M.

1
Behold the throne of grace!
The promise calls me near;
There Jesus shows his smiling face;
And waits to answer prayer.

2
That rich atoning blood
Which, sprinkled round, I see,
Provides for those who come to God
An all-prevailing plea.

3
My soul, ask what thou wilt,
Thou canst not be too bold;
Since his own blood for thee he spilt,
What else can he withhold?

4
Beyond thy utmost wants
His love and power can bless.
To praying souls he always grants
More than they can express.
