Verse 1:
              D      G/D    D                              F♯m
Before the throne of God  above I have a strong, a perfect plea,
  D/F♯       G      D/F♯   A       Bm            G6        Em7   G/A   D
A great High Priest whose name is Love, who ever lives and pleads for  me.
   F♯m7     G  D/F♯  D      A      D/F♯   F♯m7  G  D/F♯  G  A   Bm
My name is  graven   on His hands, my  name is written   on His heart;
  Bm/A       G  D/F♯   A        Bm2   Bm Bm/A       G6     Em7    G/A   Bm
I know that while in heav'n He stands no tongue can bid me thence depart,
   Bm/A       G2     Em7    G/A   D
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
Verse 2:
            D        G/D    D                                F♯m
When Satan tempts me to despair, and tells me of the guilt within,
  D/F♯    G   D/F♯  A      Bm                G6     Em7   G/A   D
Upward I look and  see Him there who made an end to all   my    sin.
        F♯m7   G  D/F♯   D      A    D/F♯   F♯m7  G   D/F♯  G  A   Bm
Because the    sinless  Saviour died, my sinful  soul is   counted free;
    Bm/A     G   D/F♯  A     Bm2   Bm  Bm/A    G6      Em7  G/A   Bm
For God the Just is    satisfied   to  look on Him and pardon     me,
   Bm/A    G2      Em7  G/A    D
To look on Him and pardon      me.
Verse 3:
            D         G/D    D                                  F♯m
Behold Him there! The risen Lamb, my perfect, spotless righteousness;
    D/F♯      G   D/F♯   A    Bm              G6    Em7   G/A    D
The great unchangea  -  ble I AM, the King of glory and    of  grace!
         F♯m7  G  D/F♯    D     A    D/F♯    F♯m7  G  D/F♯    G   A   Bm
One with Himself  I      cannot die, my soul is   purchased with His blood;
   Bm/A    G   D/F♯   A       Bm2    Bm   Bm/A       G6      Em7  G/A   Bm
My life is hid with Christ on high,  with Christ, my Saviour and  my    God,
     Bm/A       G2      Em7  G/A   D
With Christ, my Saviour and  my   God.

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong, a 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 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 with His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ, my Savior and my God
With Christ my Savior and my God
