The Throne of Grace

(Heb. 14:6)
by Jim Rapp

What is this Throne of Grace
the writer to the Hebrews names?
It would have to be an awful place,
using “awful” with the same

intent that Jacob used when he
encountered Yahweh’s angels
climbing up and down the
ether’s stairways, sending chills

through his being. To think that he,
a thoroughly imperfect man,
running from his sins, could receive
Yahweh's graces, sure and grand!

What is this Throne of Grace
the writer to the Hebrews names?
It is here that sinners coming trace,
sevenfold, the image their sins,

then watch the shadow of a cross
obscure their image traced,
a crimson flood remove the dross,
and know they’re standing
            in an awful place.
