Before the Throne of God above.

We bought this cd this weekend while at the Christian Bookstore. It was one of those perk buys, I think we paid $4.00 for it. Wow, was it worth it. It is pretty much like every other Selah Cd, (which is good) however, there is an AWESOME song on it. It was kind of comical when we listened to it, because Rob went crazy. He has been trying to find this song for sometime, of course he didn't know the name or the artist when he heard it on the radio. So, needless to say, he was pretty excited about this purchase.
The song is, Before the Throne of God Above. The words are below.
Before The Throne of God Above Words and Music by Vikki Cook, Charitie Bancroft

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.
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 the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free.
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.

Behold Him there the risen Lamb,
My perfect spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
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!

The words of this song absolutey say it all. For God my debt is satisfied, because of Christ. I can really go on and on about this. My heart, my soul lept inside me when I heard the words of this song, it ministered to my spirit so very much. Because of the perfect sacrifice that Christ made, my debt is satisfied, no longer counted against me. My life truly is his with Christ on high.

That is all I can say for now, I must go to work. Have a blessed day. If anyone can, please find this song, listen to this song and think of the words.
