Before The Throne Of God


Verse 1

Before the throne of God above

I have a strong and perfect plea

A great High Priest whose name is Love

Who ever lives and pleads for me


Verse 2

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


Verse 3

When Satan tempts me to despair

And tells me of the guilt within

Upward I look and see Him there

Who made an end of all my sin


Verse 4

Because the sinless Saviour died

My sinful soul is counted free

For God the Just is satisfied

To look on Him and pardon me


Verse 5

Behold Him there the risen Lamb

My perfect spotless Righteousness

The great unchangeable I AM

The King of glory and of grace


Verse 6

One with Himself I cannot die

My soul is purchased by His blood

My life is hid with Christ on high

With Christ my Saviour and my God
