530. Behold the Throne of grace!

1 Behold the Throne of grace!
The promise calls me near:
There Jesus shows a smiling face,
And waits to answer prayer.

2 My soul, ask what thou wilt;
Thou canst not be too bold;
Since his own blood for thee he spilt,
What else can he withhold?

3 Thine image, Lord, bestow,
Thy presence and thy love;
I ask to serve thee here below,
And reign with thee above.

4 Teach me to live by faith;
Conform my will to thine;
Let me victorious be in death,
And then in glory shine.
