I don't think this works particularly well as a song, but as I was jotting down the words today, I thought it would be fun to put it to music. As I am unable to write the tunes that float around in my head down, I've chosen this beautiful old melody
Leoni, Hebrew melody, Sacred Harmony, 1780
From Salem's heights, He trod
The King of Righteousness,
Priest of the Most High God
His Servant there, to bless.
The Patriarch of old
His favour, did obtain,
With bread and wine, from His own hand
He did sustain.
He walked this vale of tears
My King of Righteousness,
But lo, in Heaven itself, appears
The Prince of Peace!
His body marred and pierced
His precious, poured out blood,
My righteousness affirms,
and gives me peace with God.
This Great High Priest of mine
Became The Mercy Seat,
A place, where the Divine
And mortal man, can meet.
Before His throne I bend
My all, to Him I bring,
May praise and incense sweet,
ascend To Christ my King.
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Heb 9:24 KJV
