Priesthood of Christ. Heb 9. 24-26; 12. 24

I. Watts                                        L.M.

Blood has a voice to pierce the skies:
“Revenge!” the blood of Abel cries;
But the dear stream, when Christ was slain,
Speaks peace as loud from every vein:

Pardon and peace from God on high;
Behold, he lays his vengeance by;
And rebels that deserve his sword,
Become the favourites of the Lord.

To Jesus let our praises rise,
Who gave his life a sacrifice;
Now he appears before our God,
And for our pardon pleads his blood.
