Before The Throne Of God Above

Last Sunday, we sung the hymn, Before the Throne of God Above, at church. The words of the hymn were written by Charitie Lees Bancroft in 1863. I enjoy the words of the hymn.

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 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.

Behold Him there the risen Lamb,
My perfect spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace,
One in 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!

This hymn reminds me that Jesus is my high priest that pleas my case before the Father. Because he died on the cross for my sins I am pardon from my sins. Even Satan can not override the forgiveness Jesus gave me.

I spotless in front of God for I have been purchased with Christ's blood. Freed from my sin and living with my Savior and my God.
