Before the Awesome Throne of God (I John 5:14-16)

Before the awesome throne of God,
In confidence we bring our prayer,
For in His will He listens well,
Our intercession finished there.
O saint! He always hears,
Your words have reached His ears.

Before the awesome throne of God,
We will for what our Father wills,
We wait and wish for Him to give,
As He has waited to fulfill.
Your Father loves to act,
Then never fear to ask.

Before the awesome throne of God,
We emulate our Savior’s grace,
To intercede as He has done,
And for our wayward brother pray:
Redemption then our plea,
For which we bend our knee.

Before the awesome throne of God,
When judgment comes upon all sin,
We can not pity those condemned,
But lovingly must side with Him.
The hardened rebel warned,
And given to the Lord.

Before the awesome throne of God,
My brothers, never cease to pray!
For know your prayer bears the strength,
To both withhold or bring the rain.
Oh, pray therefore for life!
Redemption born through Christ.
