We have an Advocate — Don Fortner
(Tune: #33 — Stand Up and Bless the Lord — SM)
1. In heavenŐs holy court,
Where justice reigns and shines,
Truth makes a constant, strict report,
Of all our sins and crimes.
2. There Christ our Advocate,
Takes up our cause, secures our state,
And His own merit pleads.
3. This is our joy and cheer: —
Before our FatherŐs eyes,
Jesus, our Advocate draws near,
And pleads His sacrifice!
4. Our guilt before us stood,
Like mountains to oppose;
But that blest ocean, JesusŐ blood,
All mountains overflows!
5. The law its sentence reads,
And we confess our sin;
His precious blood our Savior pleads;
And God declares us clean!
