1 I entered the throne room where Jesus, my Lord,
Was waiting the captive to free;
He reached out His sceptre; He spake the glad word,
And cleansing and joy came to me.
O glory! O glory, what rapture is mine!
The King in His beauty I see;
I’m singing His praises since Jesus divine
Extended His sceptre to me.
2 I entered the throne room when burdened with care;
A load I had carried too long.
He reached out His sceptre; He answered my pray’r,
And sent my away with a song. [Refrain]
3 I entered the throne room when earth ties were riven,
And darkness had shrouded the day;
I touched the bright sceptre, and comfort was giv’n;
The shadows were driven away.
