Read these words and breathe them in. Let the reality, the truth of them, hit you. What a Saviour!

"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 Saviour died
my sinful soul is counted free
For God, the Just, is satsified
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 Saviour and my God."
