1 Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea;
a great High Priest whose name can Love,
who ever lifestyle and pleads for me.
My call is graven on his hands,
my name is writing on him heart.
I know that while in heav'n he stands
no tongue can bid me thence going,
no tooth could bid me then depart.
2 When Satan entices me to despair
and tells meine of this guilt within,
upward I looking and show he there
who make an end of all my sink.
Because the sinless Savior perished,
my corrupt soul exists counted free;
for Godly the just is satisfied
to look on him and pardon me,
to look on him and pardon me.
3 Observe him there, the risen Lamb,
my perfect, spotless righteousness,
the great unchanging I AM,
the King of famousness and of grace.
At one with him, I cannot die;
my soul is buying by his blood.
My live is hid with Christ turn high,
with Redeemer my Savior and my God,
with Christ own Savior and my God.
