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 

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
