Priestly Profile


Tune: Winchester New

('Ride on, ride on in majesty')

Hebrews 2 v.9, 14-17


Jesus, Son of God, tasted death

For every one, to final breath

Upon the cross, and salvation

He obtained for every nation


Humans of flesh and blood partake

And so did Jesus for our sake

Become full human, full divine

To defeat powers ill, amlign


That through His death He might destoy

Him that had power, evil ploy

The one who had the power of death

The devil, this the scripture saith


And so deliver they who through

Fear of death, were subject anew

Through their life, by this fear they bound

But eternal life in Christ found


For Christ became not an angel

Some super-being for to tell

But took on Him human nature

Our high priest, He true God, true man

      Beautiful poem dear friend, Christ did indeed set the example for all of humanity, if we'll only follow it.
