Before the Throne of God Above

okay, call me weird, but I’ve got a great song stuck in my head:

Before the Throne of God Above

I especially like Chris Rice’s version… it’s so pretty, and I LOVE the lyrics!

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

When Satan tempts me to dispair
And tells me of my 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

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

I’ve had it stuck in my head since Sunday. We sang it at church. We use a different tune, which is also very nice. I like both tunes.

I have lots of ideas for blog posts to come, so stay tuned.

    I think I’ve heard that song, but I’m horrible with remembering lyrics, etc. But it is beautiful 🙂
