1. The atoning work is done; the Victim’s blood is shed;
And Jesus is now gone, His people’s cause to plead.
    He stands in heav’n their great High Priest
    And bears their names upon His breast.

2. He sprinkles with His blood the mercy-seat above;
Else justice had withstood the purposes of love;
    But justice now objects no more,
    And mercy yields her boundless store.

3. No temple made with hands His place of service is;
In heav’n itself He stands, a heav’nly Priesthood His!
    In Him the shadows of the law
    Are all fulfilled, and now withdraw.

4. And though awhile He be hid from the eyes of men,
His people look to see their great High Priest again;
    In brightest glory He will come,
    And take His waiting people home.
