Who ever lives and pleads for me

No tongue can bid me thence depart

No tongue can bid me thence depart  

Verse 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 to all my sin 

Because the sinless Saviour 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
