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 to 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

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 Saviour and my God

– Before the Throne of God Above, Various Artists

Before Sonicflood came out with the newer version of this hymn, it was originally written in 1863.  ‘Twas a long time ago, that was; but yet it continues to play in my mind and remind me of the great Story that has stood through the ages – a story as unchangeable as history and as undeniable as truth.

Past meets present and moves on to the future.

Wow.

You know, i really wish i could write in chinese like this.
