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

 

abraham

 

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

 



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
