Within the veil appear,
In robes of mystic meaning dressed,
Presenting Israel's prayer.

And clouds of incense from his hands
Arise with odor sweet.

A greater priest than he:
Thus Jesus pleads above the skies,
For you, my friends, and me.

5 He bears the names of all his saints,
Deep on his heart engraved;
Attentive to the state and wants
of all his love has saved.

6 In him a holiness complete,
Light and perfections shine,
And wisdom, grace, and glory meet;
A Savior all divine.
