The Day of Atonement

                     The Day of Atonement

Into the holiest of all the high priest alone could go
And what transpired beyond that veil no other mortal know
To sprinkle blood before the Lord and make atonement here
And only he not without blood could enter once a year

But Christ our Everlasting Priest Who died upon a tree
With wounds and blood upon His hands entered the heavenlies
His flesh that symbolized the veil was rent in twain that day
To open up the holiest for us to come and pray

Atonement made, our sins forgiv’n, Christ’s death removes our guilt
And now we come into the place where once His blood was spilt
Remembering the precious price to come into this place
May we with bold and thankful hearts come to this throne of grace
