Trying Out Some New Stuff

Sorry, this is a boring post. I'm just experimenting with embedding video into my posts. Hopefully it works. This is my current favorite Chelsea tribute, one which is very timely since it speaks of the 6 point gap between us and Man. United. But sadly, there is no Prem. action this weekend, we have FA Cup action instead. Probably a good thing, since I really should be spending tomorrow in the library writing papers. Even so, GO BLUES!

"Before the Throne of God Above"

Some mornings like this morning I am just overwhelmed by all that God is for me in Christ. I am entirely captivated by Him and don't wish to move a single muscle out of of His precious presence. This morning is just such a morning and this song, a song I learned in my days at Five Points keeps coming to mind. I wish more of my hours and my days could be spent in the way this morning has. Oh for more grace to keep on in this fight of faith!

"Before the Throne of God Above"
by Charitie Bancroft

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 Heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
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
To look on Him and pardon me

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.
