Throne of Grace

This song is by Shai Linne and appears on the album The Atonement (2008).

"Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion, and to you shall vows be performed. O you who hears prayer, to you shall all flesh come. When iniquities prevail against me, you atone for our transgressions. Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, the holiness of your temple!" (Psalm 65:1-4)

Heavenly Father, it's in the name of Jesus I pray
He is the way- for His sake, please receive what I say
First things first, blessed be Your holy name
There's none like You, You stand alone and you reign
Lord, You know my frame, You remember that I'm dust
Jesus, who overcame- it's in Him I put my trust
No confidence in the flesh, it's obvious I'm a mess
No doubt, much more a mess than what I can see manifest
I confess that I daily fall short of Your glory
I've failed so many times- my sin's always before me
I take time to ponder the opportunities I've squandered
And how I'm prone to wander from here to yonder
My foolish, restless heart clings to dear idols
Which could never satisfy me- they're mere trifles
Like David said, You hem me in behind and before
You convict me of the sin that I've been trying to ignore
Lord, you see my immaturity, You see my insecurity
You see all my impurity- how long will You endure with me?
My heart's laid before You- stark naked, undressed
I pray that You would become greater and that I'd become less
Yes, when I see Jesus and His inherent loveliness
I'm reminded of my own comparative nothingness
And actually, I'm as primitive as can be
Compared to His magnificent, infinite majesty
You've shown me the glory of Christ, He's so holy
My only hope is that You look upon the lowly
So I humble myself as I appear at Your throne
Not based on my righteousness, but Christ's merits alone
I'm crying out for mercy as I magnify Your name
You amplified the pain of the Lamb of God who was slain
So truly, I only have one request that'll suit me
Please open up my eyes to better behold His beauty
