Before Thy mercy seat O Lord Behold Thy




Before Thy mercy seat, O Lord,
Behold, Thy servants stand,
To ask the knowledge of Thy Word,
The guidance of Thy hand.


Let Thy eternal truths, we pray,
Dwell richly in each heart;
That from the safe and narrow way
We never may depart.


Lord, from Thy Word
remove the seal,
Unfold its hidden store,
And as we read, teach us to feel
Its value more and more.


Help us to see a Saviorís love
Shine forth from every page,
And let the thoughts of joys above
Our inmost souls engage.


Thus, while Thy Word
our footsteps guides,
Shall we be truly blest,
And soon arrive where love provides
An everlasting rest.


---Alternative verses---


Lord, from Thy Word
remove the seal,
Unfold its hidden store,
And teach us as we read to feel
Its value more and more.


Help us to see thy grace and love
Through all its pages shine;
All sloth and unbelief remove,
And make us wholly thine.
