Before the Throne of God Above

This Sunday in worship I'm looking forward to singing one of my favorite hymns: Before the Throne of God Above.  The words were originally written in 1863 by Charitie Bancroft and the tune was composed by Vikki Cook.

I think my favorite lyrics in the hymn are the following:
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free,
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.
Below is a beautiful version of the hymn from Edgewood Community Church in Waupun, Wisconsin.
