Priest


Do you need a faithful priest
   To offer up a sacrifice
For your sins--the worst, the least--
   Completely, so it's not done twice?

God's provided such a one,
   Who's fully God and fully man--
His own sole-begotten son,
   The great, full priest whose work will stand.

He is priest, and He is king.
   He's risen, and He'll never die.
Christ, who'll rule--yes, everything:
   The earth is his, and his the sky.

Come, then, running to this priest
   Abandoning your many sins.
Christ will spread a welcome feast.
   Believe, be clean, and life begins.

So also Christ did not glorify Himself so as to become a high priest, but He who said to Him, "YOU ARE MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU." (Hebrews 5:5 NASB)
