Upward I Look And See Him There

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. 
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...
