When Hannah, Pressed With Grief

When Hannah, pressed with grief,
Poured forth her soul in prayer;
She quickly found relief,
And left her burden there:
Like her, in every trying case,
Let us approach the Throne of grace.

When she began to pray,
Her heart was pained and sad;
But ere she went away,
Was comforted and glad:
In trouble, what a resting place,
Have they who know the Throne of grace!

Though men and devils rage,
And threaten to devour;
The saints, from age to age,
Are safe from all their pow’r:
Fresh strength they gain to run their race,
By waiting at the Throne of grace.

Eli her case mistook,
How was her spirit moved
By his unkind rebuke?
But God her cause approved.
We need not fear a creature’s face,
While welcome at the Throne of grace.

She was not filled with wine,
As Eli rashly thought;
But with a faith divine,
And found the help she sought:
Though men despise and call us base,
Still let us ply the Throne of grace.

Men have not pow’r or skill,
With troubled souls to bear;
Though they express good-will,
Poor comforters they are:
But swelling sorrows sink apace,
When we approach the Throne of grace.

Numbers before have tried,
And found the promise true;
Nor one been yet denied,
Then why should I or you?
Let us by faith their footsteps trace,
And hasten to the Throne of grace.

As fogs obscure the light,
And taint the morning air;
But soon are put to flight,
If the bright sun appear;
Thus Jesus will our troubles chase,
By shining from the Throne of grace.

~By John Newton.~


A Little Note:

Oh, how we thank the Lord for His grace that is new to us
every single morning. We can boldly come unto His Throne room
and find grace in time of need. We need the Lord every single day.
We need Him every hour. What a privilege to know the Lord!
Where would we be without Him? To whom would we go?

When times are good, we need Him. When times are rough, we need
Him. We need at all times. Whatever our need is today, we know that
the Lord is able to meet our need. He is able to comfort our hearts.

He is able to help our loved ones whom we pray for.
He is able to sustain those who are going through a
battle in their lives. He is able to help His child-- whatever
the need!

Oh, that we would love the Lord Jesus
with all of hearts! That we would love Him more than
anything else. Oh that we would cast on Him our every
burden. Oh, that we would remember that His Throne room
of grace is always open-- and we are invited to come!

Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Hebrews 4:14-16 
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the
Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we
have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are,
yet without sin.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we
may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Psalm 118:29 
O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good:
for his mercy endureth for ever.

Phil 1:2 
Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our
Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
