Years I spent in sorrow ’round the cross

1
Years I spent in sorrow ’round the cross,
Still repenting over sins and dross.
Then at last the river I did cross,
  To touch the throne.
  Mercy now is flowing, oh, the grace—
That I find of Him to run the race!
Boldly now I come again to taste
    My glorious Lord.
2
In my Christian life I’d daily fall,
So I answered every altar-call,
Till I left the altar, left it all,
  To touch the throne.
3
Brothers, to the Holiest forward come;
Leave your sins behind, the race now run.
Hallelujah! All the work is done—
  The veil is gone!
4
Now within the veil, enjoying God,
Manna, law of life, and budding rod;
Christ Himself, the ark, is our abode—
  Hallelujah!

That I find of Him to run the race!

Boldly now I come again to taste

My glorious Lord"!

God is so amazing: Christ broke the veil and now we can touch God. We can touch Him, feel His breath upon our face, hug Him, kiss His face, come closer. This is an amazing song about just being closer to God. A timeless classic: new tunes may come and go but the words are so powerful they live on!

Yes, now the way is open for us to enter the Holy of Holiest in the blood of Jesus. I wanna daily enter in there and enjoy the very God at the throne. He has fulfilled allow the righteous requirements of the law, no need for me to grieve at the cross in outer court. "Thank You, Lord Jesus for the way You have opened for me thru Your vicarious death, thank You I may meet God the Father in the Holiest place."

Hallelujah! Christ has met all of God's righteous requirements! Now it is no longer you and I who strive to live, only to fail again and again, but Christ who lives and flows freely, gloriously, and victoriously in and through us! Truly, He is worthy of all our praise! Brothers (and sisters!)- to the holiest FORWARD COME!
