Leviticus 17: The Law of Grace

To God, and God alone, bring sacrifice,
No worship then to demons should be made.
Or else in breaking this you lose your life,
Give soothing incense to the grace we prayed.
And drink no blood for this contains the life,
And this the sign – atonement of the earth.
In eating blood you worship hellish vice,
And through His blood God gave us all new birth.
And those who find the carcass of a beast,
Must wash their hands to keep their body clean.
A simple law, the covenant repeats,
But by the law our blood is made unclean.
Then must we bear the weight of sin and die?
The lamb, the blood, the water Christ provides!
