1 Tremblingly, as once of old,
Esther, in the royal court,
For a people captive sold,
Mercy and deliverance sought.

2 So I come, my king, to Thee,
Trembling at Thy feet I fall;
Stretch Thy scepter over me,
Let me hear Thy gracious call.

3 I have naught to offer Thee,
Naught to plead in sin’s defense,
Yet unto Thy courts I flee;
Jesus, do not drive me thence.

4 Thou hast crowned me with Thy love,
Summoned me Thy name to bear;
Bending from Thy throne above,
King of Heaven, hear my prayer.

5 King of grace and love untold,
Come and feast with me today,
Not as Esther’s king of old,
But forevermore to stay.
