Before the throne of God above

1
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.
2
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart;
I know that while with God He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
3
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.
4
Because the sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.
5
Behold Him there, the risen Lamb!
My perfect, spotless Righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace.
6
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.

So much truth to meditate on, yet I wonder how much I really grasp that nothing can bid me to be separated from His love and salvation! Wow!

They don't write lyrics like this today, do they? Though I must admit the modern melody is more moving than the 19th century version. PTL.

This beautiful hymn is based on so many scriptural promises it enriches my soul, especially "When Satan tempts me to despair".

We long to worship Thee

Because the sinless Saviour died,

My sinful soul is counted free

For God, the Just, is satisfied

To look on Him and Pardon me.

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.

Me too this one blesses me;

"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.

Thanks

My name is graven on hand.

My name is written on his heart.

I know that while in heaven he stands, no tongue can bid me thence depart.

This song is so refreshing, its my strength everyday. The melody is not what am used to but the lyrics strike the heart.

When Satan tempts me to despair,

And tells me of the guilt within,

Upward I look, and see Him there

Let us look up to Him!
