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 heav'n He stands No tongue can bid me thence depart, No tongue can bid me thence depart.
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.
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!
