1 Jesus the great High Priest
Hath full attonement made,
Will make his people truly bless'd
Who own him for their head.

2 The Priests ordain'd of old,
They answer'd to their times:
But all their off'ring never could
Attone for all their crimes.

3 But Christ the Saviour brings
Off'rings of greater worth--
Than typ's and shadow of those things
That only held him forth.

4 Not blood of Calves or Goates
Did Jesus sacrifice;
To cleanse the soul from sin and spots,
Must be of greater price.

5 Jesus by his own blood,
Went in that holy place,
And sacrifc'd himself to God,
To save all Adam's race.

6 He ever reigns above
And for us interceeds:
There manifests his tender love,
And there our causes pleasds.
