Representative Text

THERE is a mercy seat revealed,
A glorious throne of sovereign grace,
Where broken hearts may all be healed
And truly feel love’s warm embrace.
O trembling soul, dispel thy fear,
By faith through Christ to God draw near.

2 The smoking flax God will not quench,
Nor will he break the bruised reed;
His justice and his love do blend
When guilty souls for mercy plead.
Come, sinner and backslider, fall
Before his throne, for pardon call.

3 Tears of repentance will not save,
Nor yet good works for sin atone;
The sacrifice that Jesus gave
Must be thy plea, and that alone.
No other name, however high,
Can bring thy soul to Heaven nigh.
