Approach, my soul


    • 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. 

    • Bowed down beneath a load of sin, 
    • by Satan sorely pressed, 
    • by wars 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
