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 a 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

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the One
Risen Son of God!

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
With Christ, my Savior and my God

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the One
Risen Son of God!

[repeat x3]
