Good Friday 2014- Before the Throne.

Before the Throne- Shane and Shane

Before the Throne is probably one of my favorite songs of all time. Ever. It's amazing. I also just love Shane and Shane very much.

Here are a few more worldly reasons I love this specific version:
1. I typically don't enjoy live versions of songs, but this one gives me goosebumps.
2. It's filmed during their Christmas tour, which I have always wanted to go see.
3. They have amazing voices.
4. In this version, they are joined by Bethany Dillon, who I definitely loved a ton back in my early teens. (She released her first CD when she was 16, which I thought was incredibly cool.)

Today is Good Friday, and what a sacrificial and loving act He did for us on this day. There are no words to describe. I love this song for spiritual reasons because:
1. There's something about a whole audience singing powerful and moving lyrics together that's so moving.
2. They have incredible deep lyrics.
3. This song is very touching to me. Kley has always really loved this song, my best friend sang this at her wedding, and it's very frequently turned up quite loud on car trips.
4. Jesus dying on the cross is something that's taught and talked about so much that it can sometimes lose the true meaning. That's shameful to say, but it happens to me. This song is an incredible reminder for me of what this day means.

I always and forever want thinking of the cross to be something so profound that I am moved to tears at what He did for me and the great love He has for me. And for you too.

My name is graven on His hands, my name is written on His heart.

Upward I look and see Him there, who made an end of all my sin.

Because the sinless Savior died, my sinful soul is counted free.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, praise the One, risen Son of God.
