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?

Newton, John, who was born in London, July 24, 1725, and died there Dec. 21, 1807, occupied an unique position among the founders of the Evangelical School, due as much to the romance of his young life and the striking history of his conversion, as to his force of character.

Notes

Behold the throne of grace. J. Newton. [The Throne of Grace.] Appeared in the Olney Hymns, 1779, Book i.. No. 33, in 8 stanzas of 4 lines, and based on 1 Kings iii. 5. Although extensively used both in Great Britain and in America, it is generally in an abridged, and sometimes altered form. In 1781 J. Wesley published the last four stanzas of the original as a hymn in the Arminian Magazine, p. 285, beginning "Since 'tis the Lord's command," but it failed to attract attention, and in that form is unknown to modern hymn-books. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
