"Before The Throne Of God Above"
set tempo
3rd fret
On Shane and Shane's CD they play it on capo 3, but most people can't sing that 
high so I play it on capo 2. 

C                     F    C
Before the throne of God above
C                        Em
I have a strong, a perfect plea:
             F        C      G     Am
A great High Priest, whose name is Love,
         F                    C
Who ever lives and pleads for me.

            F             C
My name is graven on his hands,
            F             Am    
My name is written on his heart;
            F        G         Am 
I know that while in heaven he stands
               F              Am
No tongue can bid me thence depart
               F               C 
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

C                    F    C    
When Satan tempts me to despair,
C                        Em
And tells me of the guilt within,
          F        C    G   Am
Upward I look, and see him there
          F              C
Who made an end of all my sin.

              F            C 
Because a sinless Savior died,
             F             Am
My sinful soul is counted free;
              F         G   Am
For God, the Just, is satisfied
        F                 C
To look on Him and pardon me
        F                 C
To look on Him and pardon me

G              Em   Am             F
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Praise the One,
      G       C
Risen Son of God!

The last two verses just follow the same pattern as the first ones. 

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

The pattern is always F G Am.
When it repeats, it goes to F G C.

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. Based on their song from Dare 2 Share album, these chords are clearly wrong. The chords ARE usable to play the song, but not even close to what they use for their version of the song.
