In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: A Good High Priest

A Good High Priest Is Come


A good High Priest is come,
supplying Aaron’s place,
and taking up his room,
dispensing life and grace;
the law by Aaron’s priesthood came,
but grace and truth by Jesus’ name.

He once temptations knew
of eve’y sort and kind,
that He might succor show
to ev’ry tempted mind;
in ev’ry point the Lamb was tried
like us, and then for us He died.

He died, but lives again,
and by the throne He stands,
there shows how He was slain,
op’ning His piercèd hands;
our Priest abides and pleads the cause
of us who have transgressed His laws.

I other priests disclaim,
and laws and off’rings too;
none but the bleeding Lamb
the mighty work can do;
He shall have all the praise: for He
has loved, and died, and lives for me.

Hymns to the Living God (Religious Affections Ministries, 2017).

Right tune, different hymn.

The current hymnal for this series is Hymns to the Living God, published by Religious Affections Ministries. This is such a good hymnal that I’m pretty sure I could happily post every hymn it contains, but I’ll be limiting selections to hymns I have never posted here before, especially those unfamiliar to me (of which there are many). For more information and to purchase this hymnal, visit Religious Affections Ministries.
