541. Before the Throne of God Above (Ante el gran trono celestial)

1 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,
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

2 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 Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God the Just is satisfied
To 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 celestial
Cristo 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 Tentador
trayendo culpa y aflicción,
mis ojos buscan al Señor,
al inocente que murió.
Y por su muerte el Salvador
mi alma hizo revivir,
pues Dios, el Justo, aceptó
su 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 moriré
pues con su sangre me compró.
Mi vida está escondida en él,
en Cristo Dios, mi Salvador,
en Cristo Dios, mi Salvador.
