"Before The Throne Of God Above" guitar cover, using the beautiful tune composed by Sir Hubert Parry for the choral anthem "Jerusalem".

This song, written by Charitie Lees Bancroft (1841--1923), contains one of the most theologically-rich descriptions of our salvation through Christ that can be found in a hymn.

Paul Washer has preached on this song, see:

LYRICS:

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.
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.

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 Saviour died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God the Just is satisfied
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 Saviour and my God.
