Before The Throne


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 in 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 to all my sin.


Because the 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,

Living 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 with himself, I cannot die

My soul is purchased with his blood

My life is hid with him on high,

With my Messiah and my God

With my Messiah and my God
