Improvisations on General Hymns


1 Before the throne of God aboveI 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 standsNo tongue can bid me thence depart,No tongue can bid me thence depart.

2 When Satan tempts me to despairAnd tells me of the guilt within,Upward I look and see him thereWho made an end of all my sin.Because the sinless Savior died,My sinful soul is counted free;For God the Just is satisfiedTo look on him and pardon me,To look on him and pardon me.

3 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 Savior and my God,With Christ, my Savior and my God.


1 Ante el gran trono celestialCristo intercede hoy por mí,Gran Sacerdote, sin igual,el que por siempre ha de vivir.Y en sus manos, por su amor,mi nombre ya grabado está;sé bien que tengo su favor,y nadie de él me apartará,y nadie de él me apartará.

2 Y cuando acecha el Tentadortrayendo culpa y aflicción,mis ojos buscan al Señor,al inocente que murió.Y por su muerte el Salvadormi alma hizo revivir,pues Dios, el Justo, aceptósu obra en la cruz por mí,su obra en la cruz por mí.

3 Ved al Cordero Redentor,quien su justicia supo dar;el inmutable gran "YO SOY",el Rey de gloria y majestad.Unido a él no morirépues con su sangre me compró.Mi vida está escondida en él,en Cristo Dios, mi Salvador,en Cristo Dios, mi Salvador.Source: Santo, Santo, Santo: cantos para el pueblo de Dios = Holy, Holy, Holy: song for the people of God #541
