Before the Throne of God Above

I have searching for new worship songs for our team this summer and stumbled on to this song called "Before the Throne of God Above"

These words are unbelievable and I can hardly wait to sing it in our worship services!

Before The Throne Of God Above

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

I can't wait to come to church and sing it together with everyone!

We're so out of the loop. We were in Iowa last Sunday, Winn was in the Boundary Waters the Sunday before, and now we'll be in Alaska for the next two Sundays. But after that I think we'll be staying put for a while!
