before the throne of god above

(Suggested Capo 2) 

                     C          F       C

Before the throne of God above,

C                          Em

I have a strong, a perfect plea,

                          F                   G          Am

A great High Priest whose name is "Love,"

                Dm                      F     C

Who ever lives and pleads for me.

 

 

                      F         C        G

My name is graven on His hands

                       F           G        Am

My name is written on His heart;

                       F           G           Am

I know that while in heav'n He stands

                        F               G       Am

no tongue can bid me thence depart.

                        F                G          C

No tongue can bid me thence depart.

 

 

                        C          F          C

When Satan tempts me to despair,

C                          Em

and tells me of the guilt within,

            F                   G          Am

upward I look and see Him there

         Dm                      F     C

Who made an end to all my sin.

 

 

                       F         C        G

Because the sinless Saviour died,

                    F           G        Am

my sinful soul is counted free;

                    F           G        Am

For God, the Just, is satisfied

                     F           G        Am

to look on him and pardon me.

                  F                G          C

to look on him and pardon me.

 

 

                        C          F        C

Behold him there! the risen Lamb,

C                          Em

my perfect, spotless Righteousnes                   

    F                   G          Am

the great unchangeable I AM,

           Dm                      F     C

the King of glory and of grace!

 

 

                   F          C        G

One with Himself I cannot die,

                      F           G        Am

My soul is purchased by His blood;

                      F           G        Am

My life is hid with Christ on high,

                      F           G        Am

with Christ, my Saviour and my God

                        F                G          C

with Christ, my Saviour and my God
