Christ EMBOLDENS Us to Approach the Throne — With His Sympathy

 

Date : 2018-11-09
Speaker : Professor Paul Naumann
Hebrews 4:15-16
For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Hymn: TLH 456: Approach, my Soul, the Mercy Seat

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Approach, my soul, the mercy-seat 
Where Jesus answers prayer; 
There humbly fall before His feet, 
For none can perish there. 

2. Thy promise is my only plea, 
With this I venture nigh; 
Thou callest burdened souls to Thee, 
And such, O Lord, am I. 

3. Bowed down beneath a load of sin, 
By Satan sorely pressed, 
By wars without and fears within, 
I come to Thee for rest. 

4. Be Thou my Shield and Hiding-place, 
That, sheltered near Thy side, 
I may my fierce Accuser face 
And tell him Thou hast died. 

5. O wondrous Love, to bleed and die, 
To bear the cross and shame, 
That guilty sinners such as I 
Might plead Thy gracious name!
