We are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Hebrews 10:10
Words: Isaac Watts, Hymns and Spiritual Songs, Book 2, 1707–09, number 12.
Christ is the substance of the Levitical priesthood.
If you know where to get a good photo of Pond (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels),
The true Messiah now appears,
The types are all withdrawn:
So fly the shadows and the stars
Before the rising dawn.
No smoking sweets, nor bleeding lambs,
Nor kid, nor bullock slain;
Incense and spice of costly names,
Would all be burnt in vain.
Aaron must lay his robes away,
His miter and his vest,
When God Himself comes down to be
The offering and the priest.
He took our mortal flesh to show
The wonders of His love;
For us He paid His life below,
And prays for us above.
Father, He cries,
forgive their sins,;
For I Myself have died
And then He shows His opened veins
And pleads His wounded side.
