As we conclude our worship time this morning, I would suggest we sing a hymn called "Before the Throne of God Above." This is an old hymn written back in the 1800's. It has had a recent resurrection as it is a hymn that is included on one of the Selah albums.
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.
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.
