Near To The Throne Of God
In sin so long I had wandered,
My spirit, in darkness had trod,
But someone stood in the gap for me,
Brought me near to the throne of God.
The Lord opened my eyes to see,
He heard my repentant heart pray.
In faith, I came to the rugged cross,
To Jesus, the Life and the Way.
I owe it all to my Saviour:
His servant He placed in my way,
He brought me near to the throne of God –
And praise Him, He saved me that day!
Now I am under commission;
In service to my King – I am awed.
He charged me with a solemn duty:
To bring others to the throne of God.

2 Corinthians 5:17-21 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
