1220. Dear Father, to Thy Mercy Seat

1. Dear Father, to Thy mercy seat
My soul for shelter flees;
’Tis here I find a safe retreat
When storms and tempests rise.

2. My cheerful hope can never die,
If Thou, my God, art near;
Thy grace can raise my comforts high,
And banish every fear.

3. My great protector, and my Lord,
Thy constant aid impart;
O let Thy kind, Thy gracious word
Sustain my trembling heart.

4. Or never let my soul remove
From this divine retreat;
Still let me trust Thy power and love
And dwell beneath Thy feet.
