Blood (Hebrews 9:21-28)

Since blood was needed to redeem,
It sprinkled all the holy things.
Since sin had made it all unclean,
More blood was needed, more they bring.

But Christ, the perfect sacrifice,
Had blood that would forever cleanse,
Poured out in heaven to suffice,
As our eternal recompense.

And dying once, then all is done,
As our redemption is complete.
Remember, He is yet to come,
To trample death beneath His feet.

If Dumb and Mortal Beasts Can Cleanse (Hebrews 9:13-20)

If dumb and mortal beasts can cleanse,
Through blood and ashes of a lamb,
What greater cleansing of our sins,
Comes through the one immortal Word,
Both very God and very man?

So wash yourself by Jesus’ grace.
Receive the promise He gives free.
Because His death has taken place,
He mediates for our release,
To bless us through eternity.

The promise ratified by death,
And validated by God’s blood,
That Jesus’ grace may take effect,
Apart from any work we’ve done,
This signatory of His blood.

All praise we render to the Lord,
As we remember what He’s done.
The blood of promise He out-poured,
Let us rehearse that sacrament,
He all our crimson sins expunged.

O Sacred Savior (Hebrews 8:7-9)

O sacred Savior who alone,
In perfect living did atone,
The covenant of works achieved,
And thru’ Your works the Father’s pleased.
Yet You alone can this attain,
For none of us are without blame,
And falling from the moral path,
We bring upon ourselves God’s wrath.

O sacred Savior You excel,
Beyond the Law that damns to hell,
And You its missing parts provide.
You damned Yourself to save Your bride.
The covenant of grace produced,
Your blood upon the Law improved,
And graciously You made a way,
That lawfully we may be saved.

O sacred Savior praise to You!
Both perfect and perfecter, too.
Amen! All-worthy is the Christ,
The Righteous One who makes us right.
Yes, You have ripped apart the veil,
Perfecting where all others failed,
All majesty, all praise, all might,
Belong forever to the Christ!
