about

You have a position of absolute and complete acceptance before God because of all that Jesus has accomplished for us. You have a great high priest whose name is Love, who ever lives and pleads for you. Your name is graven on his hands and he cannot ever forget you.

He forgives and embraces you no matter who you are and no matter what you have done. Brilliant! Amazing! Pure Grace... Thank you Jesus!

I felt impressed the include this song the morning that the drummer was coming over. I just had to include this song! I recorded it in an open "C" tuning.

lyrics

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 written on His hands
My name is grave on His heart
I know that while in heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me hence depart,
No tongue can bid me hence 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 to 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,
To look on Him and pardon me!

Behold Him there the Risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I am
The King of glory and of grace
One with 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!
