A friend sent me a song the other day, and the words are just lovely so I will post them here. I love how the song is so simple and says so much. It was written by Charity Bancroft.
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 heav'n he stands,
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
Wow. I wish I knew some way to post the tune, but I don't. It's a shame, because this is one of those songs where the tune is perfectly suited to the words.
Aren't y'all proud of me? This makes two posts with no reference to literature! I'm branching out! :-)
