Access to the Almighty

"What can David say more unto Thee?... There is none like Thee, neither is there any God beside Thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears" (2 Samuel 7:20-22).  "He is thy Lord; and worship thou Him" (Psalm 45:11).  "They that seek the LORD understand all things" (Proverbs 28:5).  "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: by whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God" (Romans 5:1,2). 

What more could David say to God
In view of what the Lord made known?
Should men like us who are so flawed
Have access to His hallowed throne?

Come worship Him and seek the face
Of Christ our Lord, the King of kings,
Who gives us access to His grace
To make us understand all things. 

We understand each molecule
(With all its subatomic parts)  
Is subject to our Savior's rule,
Who is enthroned in humble hearts. 

Almighty God, what can we say
As we, by grace, such access claim?  
Receive our joyful thanks today
As we draw near to praise Your name.
