I Have A Strong, A Perfect Plea

Before The Throne Of God

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
When Satan tempts me to despair and tells me of the guilt within Upward I look and see Him there, Who made an end to 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
Before the throne of God, I come Before the throne of God, I come

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb my perfect spotless righteousness The great unchangeable I Am, the King of glory and of grace
My name is graven on His hands My name is written on His heart I know that while in Heaven, He stands No tongue can bid me thence depart
One with Himself I cannot die My soul is purchased with His blood My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God With Christ my Savior and my God
This is one of my favorite songs that we sing. I love the theology taught and the beauty of the imagery. It touches me every time. One friend said she liked to sing songs "that made me do this" and she raised her hand. I like songs that can transport me the throne room of God - take me to the place where Isaiah stood.

Thanks. I just got it from iTunes.

And today I know that God is good because Jim 'n Nicks BBQ just came to Denver.
