Before the Throne

of God Above

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

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
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 of all my sin

 

Because a sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the One
Risen Son of God!

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I Am
The King of glory and of grace

One in Himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by

His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ, my Savior and
my God
With Christ, my Savior and

my God

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the One
Risen Son of God!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
