Advocate from Above

"The eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him" (2 Chronicles 16:9).  "As the dew… the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore" (Psalm 133:3).  "The way of life is above to the wise" (Proverbs 15:24).  "If any man sin, we have an Advocate… Jesus Christ the righteous… that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming" (1 John 2:1,28). 

The eyes of God run to and fro
Throughout the earth in every place
Where hearts are found that He may show
The power of His saving grace.  

As dew descending from the skies,
The Lord descended from above. 
Our souls were precious in His eyes;
We were the object of His love. 

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
Upon His cross for us has died. 
Our Advocate was sacrificed
That we might thus be justified. 

O Lord, our Advocate indeed,
You are enthroned above in splendor,
Yet even now You intercede
With watchful care as our Defender!
