Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace

Hebrews 4:16

Mountain reflected in water

""Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may
obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

1.   Come boldly to the throne of grace,
         Ye wretched sinners come;
      And lay your load at Jesus’ feet,
         And plead what He has done.
      “How can I come?” some soul my say,
         “I’m lame and cannot walk;
      My guilt and sin have stopped my mouth;
         I sigh but dare not talk.”

2.   Come boldly to the throne of grace,
         Though lost and blind and lame;
      Jehovah is the sinner’s Friend
         And ever was the same.
      He makes the dead to hear His voice,
         He makes the blind to see.
      The sinner lost He came to save,
         And set the pris’ner free.

3.   Come boldly to the throne of grace,
         For Jesus fills the throne;
      And those He kills He makes alive,
         He hears the sigh or groan.
      Poor bankrupt souls; who feel and know
         The hell of sin within,
      Come boldly to the throne of grace,
         The Lord will take you in.
