627. Behold the Throne of Grace!

1 Behold the throne of grace!
The promise calls me near:
there Jesus shows a smiling face,
and waits to answer prayer.

2 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?

3 Thine image, Lord, bestow,
thy presence and thy love;
I ask to serve thee here below,
and reign with thee above.

4 Teach me to live by faith;
conform my will to thine;
let me victorious be in death,
and then in glory shine.
