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 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 to 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
