Before The Throne Of God Above

I wanted to share with you, the lyrics to my favorite song. Covenant Life Church made a cd called: How Sweet The Sound: Remembering The Great Hymns Of Faith. It is a great cd! I have it in my car and I listen to it almost everytime I go somewhere! This song had great lyrics! To view the webpage for How Sweet The Sound, click here.

Before the Throne

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.

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.

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.

    I love that hymn! Do they put it to new music in the Covenant Life CD, or is it the same? Because I love the tune, too!

    I know! It is so good! The tune is the same but the background music is different and it is a guy that sings it.

    Thanks for commenting!

    for the innominables
