Songs for Worship #10



Last year from January to June I wrote a series on
Why We Worship  where I considered an attribute of God each Sunday.

Now I'm following the weeks of Why We Worship from last year and sharing a song which I feel links in with that week's attribute.

I hope you will follow along with me.
(Just head over to the side bar and join up if you would like to receive a reminder of my posts)



                         Looking today at 


God is Just







Before the Throne of God Above


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
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 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


Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Praise the One, Risen Son of God!


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 Saviour and my God
With Christ my Saviour and my God


Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Praise the One Risen Son of God
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Praise the One Risen Son of God
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Praise the One Risen Son of God

  3. This is such a powerful song, packed full of biblical truth. My favorite part is "Because the sinless Savior died, my sinful soul is counted free. For God the just is satisfied to look on Him and pardon me." Hallelujah! Thanks for linking up with us at Grace & Truth.

  6. "Before the Throne of God" is my favorite of the songs that we sing often at our church! I don't even have to hear it to start rejoicing. Just being reminded of it through the title is enough to cause my heart to experience the blessings! So thank you for linking up on Spiritual Sundays!
