"Before the Throne" - New Verse

 I was noticing how "Before the Throne of God Above" doesn't have a verse that actually tells the gospel, so I thought I would attempt to write one with the imagery of baptism, since the Christian Calendar year celebrates the Lord's Baptism this upcoming Sunday.

From Heaven's throne came Christ in love
To ransom sinners such as we
His blood alone was price enough
His body bore our penalty
And as He laid below the earth
The object of wrath's recompense
So we are dead before our birth
Til we are raised alive in Him

Well done. I've never heard of that song before. Is it an old hymn or something recent? It sounds like an old hymn.
