Before the Throne - Rich Truth EVERYWHERE!

For the past couple of days... I have been unable to stop listening to this song. It is RICH with Theology... and I need it to preach to me every day. Here it is:


"Before the Throne"
Arr. Shane Barnard – “Pages” ©2007
Original Words by: Charitie L. Bancroft, (“Before the Throne of God Above” 1863.)

Verse 1
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great high Priest who's name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me

My name is graven on His hand
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart

Verse 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 a sinless Savior died
my sinful soul is counted free
For God the just is satisfied
to look on Him and pardon me

Chorus
Hallelujah
Praise the One Risen Son of God.

Verse 3
Behold Him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I AM
The King of Glory and of grace

One in 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

That's a good word. Thanks for sharing it with us. How incredible that we have a High Priest that pleads for us before the throne. It's too much to comprehend.
