Almighty Lord! before thy thronePublished in 4 hymnals
1 Almighty Lord, before Thy throne,
Thy mourning people bend;
'Tis on Thy grace in Christ alone,
Our failing hopes depend.
2 Dark judgments from Thy heavy hand,
Thy dreadful power display;
Yet mercy spares this guilty land,
And still we live to pray.
3 How changed, alas! are truths divine
For error, guilt and shame!
What impious numbers, bold in sin,
Disgrace the Christian name!
4 O turn us, turn us, mighty Lord!
Convert us by Thy grace;
Then shall our hearts obey Thy word,
And see again Thy face.
5 Then, should oppressing foes invade,
We shall not yield to fear,
Secure of all-sufficient aid,
When God in Christ is near.
