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.
