281. With Joy We Meditate the Grace

C.M.
by Watts
1
With joy we meditate the grace
 
Of God's High Priest above;
 
His heart is filled with tenderness,
 
His very name is Love.
“For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:15-16)
“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (1 John 4:8)
2
Touched with a sympathy within,
 
He knows our feeble frame:
 
He knows what sorest trials mean,
 
For He has felt the same.
“For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” (Hebrews 4:15)
“For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.” (Psalm 103:14)
3
But spotless, undefiled and pure,
 
The great Redeemer stood,
 
While Satan's fiery darts He bore,
 
And did resist to blood.
4
He, in the days of feeble flesh,
 
Poured out His cries and tears,
 
And, though ascended, feels afresh
 
What every member bears.
5
Then boldly let our faith address
 
The throne of grace and power;
 
We shall obtain delivering grace
 
In every needed hour.
