APPROACH, MY SOUL, THE MERCY SEAT
Approach, my soul, the mercy seat,
Where Jesus answers prayer;
There humbly fall before His feet,
For none can perish there.
Thy promise is my only plea,
With this I venture nigh;
Thou callest burdened souls to Thee,
And such, O Lord, am I.
Bowed down beneath a load of sin,
By Satan sorely pressed,
By war without and fears within,
I come to Thee for rest.
Be Thou my Shield and hiding Place,
That, sheltered by Thy side,
I may my fierce accuser face,
And tell him Thou hast died!
O wondrous love! to bleed and die,
To bear the cross and shame,
That guilty sinners, such as I,
Might plead Thy gracious name.
“Poor tempest-tossèd soul, be still;
My promised grace receive”
’Tis Jesus speaks-I must, I will,
I can, I do believe.
A blessèd Seventh Day Sabbath
to all believers.
In the Son’s Name - For the Father’s glory.
