762. Let us draw near! The blood is spilt

Author: Margaret Clarkson 1915 – 2008

Let us draw near! the blood is spilt,
the Lamb has borne the sinner’s guilt;
the sacrifice for sin is made,
we meet our Father unafraid:
then let us draw near!

2. Let us draw near: the holy door
stands open wide for evermore.
No longer flame or sword shall guard
the gate by Jesus’ hand unbarred:
then let us draw near!

3. Let us draw near! No more we fear,
our Saviour bids us welcome here.
We come as guests of princely grace
to feast in heaven’s most holy place:
then let us draw near!

4. Let us draw near, with hearts aglow,
in reverent stillness bowing low;
before the throne love’s emblems plead,
in simple faith, with all our need,
come, let us draw near!
