In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: Approach, My Soul — The Thirsty Theologian

Approach, My Soul, the Mercy Seat
BURFORD

imageApproach, my soul, the mercy-seat,
where Jesus answers pray’r;
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.

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.”

Oh wondrous love, to bleed and die,
to bear the cross and shame,
that guilty sinners such as I,
might plead Thy gracious name.

“Poor tempest-tossèd soul, be still,
my promised grace receive;”
’Tis Jesus speaks; I must, I will,
I can, I do believe.

Hymns to the Living God (Religious Affections Ministries, 2017).

Listen: BURFORD

The current hymnal for this series is Hymns to the Living God, published by Religious Affections Ministries. This is such a good hymnal that I’m pretty sure I could happily post every hymn it contains, but I’ll be limiting selections to hymns I have never posted here before, especially those unfamiliar to me (of which there are many). For more information and to purchase this hymnal, visit Religious Affections Ministries.
