Christ the Believer's Advocate

If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 1 John 2:1

Look up, my soul, with cheerful eye,
See where the great Redeemer stands--
Thy glorious Advocate on high,
With precious incense in his hands.

He sweetens every humble groan,
He recommends each broken prayer;
Recline thy hope on him alone,
Whose power and love forbid despair.
