Before Thy Mercy Seat, O Lord ~ Hymn

Before Thy Mercy Seat, O Lord

Before Thy mercy seat, O Lord,
Behold, Thy servants stand,
To ask the knowledge of Thy Word,
The guidance of Thy hand.

Let Thy eternal truths, we pray,
Dwell richly in each heart;
That from the safe and narrow way
We never may depart.

Lord, from Thy Word remove the seal,
Unfold its hidden store,
And as we read, teach us to feel
Its value more and more.

Help us to see a Savior’s love
Shine forth from every page,
And let the thoughts of joys above
Our inmost souls engage.

Thus, while Thy Word our footsteps guides,
Shall we be truly blest,
And soon arrive where love provides
An everlasting rest.

  1. “…Unfold its hidden store.” I’m so glad He’s faithful to reveal Himself to us in His Word! Hope you’ve had a blessed day, Ellen.

  2. Let Thy eternal truths, we pray,
    Dwell richly in each heart;
    That from the safe and narrow way
    We never may depart.

    That’s the verse that really speaks to me today! Thanks, Ellen!
