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.
Hebrews 4:15-16; 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.
Hebrews 4:15; 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.
Hebrews 7:26; Revelation 5:9; Matthew 4:1-10; Hebrews 12:4
4
He, in the days of feeble flesh,
 
Poured out His cries and tears,
 
And, though ascended, feels afresh
 
What every member bears.
Hebrews 5:7; Acts 9:4
5
Then boldly let our faith address
 
The throne of grace and power;
 
We shall obtain delivering grace
 
In every needed hour.
Hebrews 4:16
