On Shane and Shane's CD they play it on capo 3, but most people can't sing that
high so I play it on capo 2. 

C (x32010@1)                   F (133211@1)  CBefore (x32010@1)the throne of God above

      G (320003@1)     CRisen (x32010@1)Son of God!

The last two verses just follow the same pattern as the first ones. 

Behold him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I am,
The King of glory and of grace!

One in himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by his blood
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ, my Savior and my God
With Christ, my Savior and my God
