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

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

 

[Verse 2]

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 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

 

[Chorus]

Hallelujah, hallelujah

Praise the One

Risen Son of God

 

[Verse 3]

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 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
