Before the Throne of God

For two Sundays in a row now we have sung out together.
This song.
This simple, Gospel breathing song.
And we spilt over a little as we remembered who we are.
And Who He Is.
And what He has done.
And that, we cannot do.
Thank you Jesus.

Before The Throne Of God
Written by Vikki Cook and 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!
 
 
711. this simple hymn...a treasure
712. singing together with our church family
713. learning from the beginning....to the end
714. journey mercies: back to New Bern that Momma left
715. Koen saying, "I miss Nana. I want her to come back soon." This on the day she left.
716. always something new to learn
717. writing our Compassion kids
718. Fun Fall Harvest parties, games, candy, cake and the little girl who planned it all with her Nana
