Jesus, My Great High Priest

  1. Jesus, my great High Priest,
    offered his blood and died;
    my guilty conscience seeks
    no sacrifice beside.
    His pow’rful blood did once atone,
    and now it pleads before the throne.
  2. To this dear Surety’s hand
    will I commit my cause;
    he answers and fulfills
    his Father’s broken laws.
    Behold my soul at freedom set,
    my Surety paid the dreadful debt.
  3. My Advocate appears
    for my defense on high;
    the Father bows his ears
    and lays his thunder by.
    Not all that hell or sin can say
    shall turn his heart, his love, away.
  4. Should all the hosts of death
    and pow’rs of hell unknown
    put their most dreadful forms
    of rage and mischief on,
    I shall be safe, for Christ displays
    his conqu’ring pow’r and guardian grace.
