Sunday Hymnary: “Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace” by D. Herbert, printed in the Gadsby Hymnal, 1838.

Come boldly to the throne of grace,

Ye wretched sinners come;

And lay your load at Jesus’ feet,

And plead what He has done.

 

“How can I come?” some soul may say,

“I’m lame and cannot walk;

My guilt and sin have stopped my mouth;

I sigh, but dare not talk.”

 

Come boldly to the throne of grace,

Though lost, and blind, and lame;

Jehovah is the sinner’s friend,

And ever was the same.

 

He makes the dead to hear His voice;

He makes the blind to see;

The sinner lost he came to save,

And set the prisoner free.

 

Come boldly to the throne of grace,

For Jesus fills the throne;

And those he kills he makes alive;

He hears the sign or groan.

 

Poor bankrupt souls, who feel and know

The hell of sin within,

Come boldly to the throne of grace,

The Lord will take you in.
