Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Jesus the great High Priest
Hath full attonement made,
Will make his people truly bless'd
Who own him for their head.
2 The Priests ordain'd of old,
They answer'd to their times:
But all their off'ring never could
Attone for all their crimes.
3 But Christ the Saviour brings
Off'rings of greater worth--
Than typ's and shadow of those things
That only held him forth.
4 Not blood of Calves or Goates
Did Jesus sacrifice;
To cleanse the soul from sin and spots,
Must be of greater price.
5 Jesus by his own blood,
Went in that holy place,
And sacrifc'd himself to God,
To save all Adam's race.
6 He ever reigns above
And for us interceeds:
There manifests his tender love,
And there our causes pleasds.
