There is a house in heaven built

There is a house in heaven built

Representative Text

1 There is a house in heaven built,
The temple of the living God,
The tabernacle true, where guilt
Is washed away by precious blood.

2 Long since, our High Priest entered there,
Who knows the frailties of our frame,
Who loves to hear his people's prayer,
And offer to our God the same.

3 The daily ministry he bore,
Till ended the prophetic days;
He opened then the inner door,
To justify the sacred place.

4 Before the ark of ten commands,
On which the mercy-seat is placed,
Presenting his own blood, he stands,
Till Israel's sins are all erased.
