Before The Throne Of God Above

Yesterday I downloaded “How Sweet The Sound” from Covenant Life Church. This CD is a collection of hymns that their church will be learning over the next year. You can pay what you want for the CD or tell 5 friends about it to get the download. I opted for the tell-5-friends option.

So far I have really been enjoying the CD, but, I have particularly enjoyed the hymn “Before The Throne Of God Above.” The lyrics rock, and I really love the first verse!

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 heav’n He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart,
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
