Verse 1
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 heav'n He stands 
no tongue can bid me thence depart. 
Verse 2
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. 
Verse 3
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.
