402 The Glorious Mercy Seat CM
HIGH and exalted is thy throne,
Thou God of righteousness,
Thy vengeance there thou makest known,
And there thy richest grace.
2 Myriads redeemed from earth and hell,
Around thy throne appear,
And with incessant transports tell
The love that brought them there.
3 There angels and archangels bow,
With covered face and feet;
Thither may sinners also go,
For it is a mercy seat.
4 Then I’ll approach with holy fear,
And humble confidence;
For he who spreads his terrors there,
Dispenses blessings thence.
