Selah – Before The Throne Of God Above lyrics

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 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 to 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!
With Christ my Savior and my God!

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!
With Christ my Savior and my God!

    God is love, and gave for us is only son that we may live. We are no longer under the bondage and slavery of sin, we can come to christ upon repentance and faith in him. We can trust that he is able; the precious blood he shed for us is sufficient enough to purge our iniquities and pulverize the power of the devil's temptations. On that cross he took it upon himself the fierce wrath that we sinners deserve and purchased our salvation for eternity. What a message!
