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

Let us come and draw near
To the throne of grace
Where Jesus waits with open arms
At the throne of grace

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 near 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
