Hymn/Song Information

The atoning work is done The Victim's




The atoning work is done,
The Victimís blood is shed;
And Jesus now has gone
His peopleís cause to plead.
He stands in heaven, their great High Priest,
And bears their names Upon His breast.


He sprinkled with His blood
The mercy-seat above;
For justice had withstood
The purposes of love:
But justice now withstands no more,
And mercy yields its boundless store.


No temple made with hands
His place of service is;
In heaven itself he stands,
A heavenly priesthood His:
In Him the shadows of the law
Are all fulfilled, and now withdraw.


And though awhile He be
Hid from the eyes of men,
His people look to see
Their great High Priest again:
In brightest glory He will come,
And take His waiting people home.


---Alternative verses---


For us His blood was shed:
For us He lives above:
Secured in Him our Head,
God's purposes of love.
God's righteousness throws wide the door,
Whence mercy yields her boundless store.
