Before The Throne Of God Above
Charitie Lees Bancroft, Vikki Cook
Key: D

Verse 1:
D                    G/D   D
Before the throne of God above,
D                          F#m
I have a strong, a perfect plea,
  D/F#         G     D/F#   A       Bm
A great High Priest whose name is "Love,"
         G6         Em7   G/A D
Who ever lives and pleads for me.

Chorus 1:
        F#m G D/F# D       A
My name is graven on His hands,
D      F#m7 G  D/F# G  A    Bm
My name is written on His heart;
  Bm/A        G   D/F#  A       Bm2
I know that while in heav'n He stands
Bm Bm/A       G6     Em7    G/A  Bm
no tongue can bid me thence depart.
   Bm/A        G6    Em7    G/A  D
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 to all my sin.

Chorus 2:
Because the sinless Saviour 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.

Verse 3:
Behold him there! the risen Lamb,
my perfect, spotless Righteousness,
the great unchangeable I AM,
the King of glory and of grace!

Chorus 3:
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
with Christ, my Saviour and my God
