Hymn/Song Information

Before the throne of God above




Before the throne of God above,
I have a strong, a perfect plea,
A great High Priest
whose name is Love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.

My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart;
I know that while in heaven He stands
|:No tongue can bid
me thence depart. :|


When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin.

Because the sinless Saviour died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God the Just is satisfied
|:To look on Him and pardon me. :|


Behold Him there! The risen Lamb,
My perfect, spotless righteousness;
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace!

One with Himself I cannot die,
My soul is purchased with His blood;
My life is hid with Christ on high,
|:With Christ my Saviour
and my God. :|
