(Tune: Blest Be The Tie  #187  SM)


Prepare me, holy Lord,

To stand before Your throne;

So that in justice, by Your grace,

I may to glory come.


Make Jesus' righteousness

And His atonement mine,

By grace make me a partaker

Of His nature divine!


O Holy Spirit, come!

Your work of grace perform.

My sins subdue. My soul renew.

In saving power come!


Lord, if You will, You can

Save a sinner like me.

Helpless, I wait before Your throne

For Your salvation free.


None ever perished here,

Or sought the Lord in vain.

So here I'll wait in hope that You

Will show mercy again!
