Dear God Almighty,
we sing of the greatest High Priest,
the one who surpasses even Melchizedek in excellence,
God, Father, you son entered the Holy Place
with his own blood,
thus earning eternal salvation!
We sing of the blood of Christ,
who through the eternal Spirit,
offered himself without blemish to God,
so purifying our consciences
to worship the living God.
We sing to You, because your called people
receive the promised eternal inheritance
because through the death of Christ
redemption has also come to those are under the first covenant.
We sing because Jesus’ blood is the blood God ordained for us,
knowing that without the shedding of blood
there is no forgiveness of sin.
We sing to You, because Jesus is both priest and victim
who sacrificed himself,
and by this sacrifice saves those who eagerly wait for him.
