Come, ye who from your hearts be­lieve
That Je­sus an­swers pray­er,
Come bold­ly to a throne of grace
And claim His pro­mise there,
That, if His love in us abide
And we in Him are one,
Whatever in His name we ask
It sure­ly will be done.


Come lov­ing­ly and trust­ing­ly,
Take Je­sus at His word,
For He has said, the pray­er of faith
Was ne­ver yet un­heard.

If in the foun­tain filled with blood
Our sins are washed away
Come bold­ly to a throne of grace,
Rejoicing that we may
Come bold­ly to a throne of grace,
And bless the Lord our king—
Who fills our grate­ful hearts with praise,
And tunes our tongues to sing.


From every pre­cious, gold­en hour
We spend in fer­vent pray­er,
We ga­ther strength from day to day
For each re­turn­ing care;
And, while with true, be­liev­ing hearts
We bow be­fore His throne,
There’s not a pro­mise He has made
But we may call our own.
