Before the Throne of God Above
I discovered the group Selah almost 3 years ago through a friend at work. I love Christmas music and she let me borrow one of their albums. I was immediately hooked and went out and bought all of their music.
This song was on one their albums, and although the tune is relatively new (it was originally sung to the tune of Sweet Hour of Prayer), the lyrics are not. They were written in 1863 by Charitie Bancroft. I was looking for information about this hymn, and found a great post at the Orchard Keeper.
If you go there, you can find the lyrics and a beautiful breakdown of the scripture found in this song. Once you’ve read the post, come back and listen to the rendition by Selah….you will be blessed.
