My High Priest

October 31, 2007 at 2:01 pm Leave a comment

I have a high priest and his name is Jesus
His perfect blood meets my every need
Holy, blameless, undefiled
Heals the sick and lifts the weak

Take away my sin

Wash my body with the purest water
Sprinkle my heart and make it cleansed
Rid me of this guilty conscience
And this sin-soaked life I’ve been living in

Make me whole again

Take my breath, take my heart, my soul, my mind
For your glory, every part of me designed
All I am is a servant at your feet
Without you, Lord, I know I’m incomplete

Take ye all of me

———————

Hebrews 7:26 “Such a high priest meets our need–one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens.”

Hebrews 10:22 “let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.”
