569b. Sacred Throne

1 Beneath the sacred throne of God I saw a river rise; The streams where peace and pard’ning blood Descended from the skies. 2 I stood amazed and wondered when Or why this ocean rose; That wafts salvation down to man, His traitors and His foes. 3 That sacred flood from Jesus’ veins Was free to make away; And Mary’s or Manasseh’s stains, Or sins more vile than they
