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!
