Before the Throne of God Above

We sang this hymn at the evening service and my soul clung to the words. God's mercy is complete and perfect. Praise the Lord Jesus, who paid the penalty for all my sins!

Before the Throne of God Above
words by Charitie L. Bancroft, music by Vikki Cook

"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 on his heart;
I know that while in heaven he stands
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.

"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."
