The Perfect Sacrifice
Since the Law has but a shadow,
Of the good things to come instead;
Of true form of the realms we know,
Cannot be forfeitures we dread.
For by the same sacrifices,
That are repeatedly offered;
Makes perfect of one who complies,
With the Law given in the Word.
Otherwise would they not have ceased,
Be offered by the worshippers;
After the sins have been released,
Not conscious of sinful blunders.
Sacrifices are reminders,
Sins committed every year;
And considered as faultfinders,
Our actions are not sincere.
It is impossible for blood,
From the cattle as well as goats;
Immersing in the crimson flood,
All the iniquities that gloat.
For when Christ came into this place,
Sacrifices and offerings;
Are not desired to embrace,
To the iniquity that clings.
For the burnt offerings given,
And sin offerings no pleasure;
Gives you not the keys to Heaven,
For inheriting any treasure.
Jesus has come to do your will,
As it is written in the Book;
For encouragement to instill,
So past sin God will overlook.
When you have neither desired,
Nor that you have taken pleasure;
Of the offerings required,
Being offered for good measure.
For Christ has come to do your will,
He has done away with the first;
Established the second to fill,
Your body and to quench your thirst.
By that we have been sanctified,
Offering the body of Christ;
Letting Him to be crucified,
For the offering sacrificed.
