Interceding for Me

He ever lives above My advocate to be

Tune: [He ever lives above]

Representative Text

1 He ever lives above
My advocate to be,
With heart of tend’rest love
He intercedes for me.

Interceding for me,
Interceding for me;
O wonderful love! in courts above
He’s interceding for me.

2 No merit of my own
Can hope or mercy plead,
‘Tis Calv’ry’s grace alone
For me can intercede. [Refrain]

3 My Advocate and friend,
On Thee my hopes rely,
On Thee my cause depends;
O plead, or else I die. [Refrain]

4 My faith looks up to Thee,
Pleading at God’s right hand
For pardon full and free,
As all the law’s demand. [Refrain]
