355. Erected high in heaven stands

1 Erected high in heaven stands
The tabernacle true;
And Jesus there in mercy pleads
For all the faithful few.

2 His blood he offers freely now
For all who will receive,
For all who to his truth will bow,
And in his word believe.

3 The Jewish priesthood shadowed forth
His ministration there,
The cleansing of the inner court,
His coming to prepare.

4 His work performed, he leaves the seat
Of mercy, where is found
The law of God, the ten commands,
And comes with glory crowned.

5 He that is holy then shall be
In holiness preserved,
While sinners vainly strive to flee
The wrath they've long deserved.
