1 Father, to seek Thy face
Thy children now draw near;
Before the throne of grace
With boldness to appear;
We plead His name, His precious blood,
Who loved and made us priests to God.
2 No more we shun the light,
No more Thy presence fear;
With Christ, our sole delight,
Before Thee we appear;
Our great High Priest for us is there,
And He presents our praise and prayer.
3 No pow'r have we to praise
Thy name, O God of love;
Untill [sic] Thy Spirit raise
Our thoughts and hearts above;
His grace avails in all our need,
May He our priestly worship lead!
4 Lord, give us faith to plead
Thy true and faithful Word;
Grace for all mankind's need,
Thy help to all afford;
Thy promises in Christ are yea,
In Him Amen! to endless day.
