Today's hymn, "Since Our Great High Priest, Christ Jesus" (#529), is from the "Lutheran Service Book" (c) 2006 Concordia Publishing House.
Since our great High Priest, Christ Jesus, Bears the name above all names
Reigning Son of God, surpassing Other titles, pow'rs and claims --
Since to heav'n our Lord has passed, Let us hold our witness fast!
Since we have a priest who suffered, Knowing weakness, tears, and pain,
Who like us was tried and tempted, Unlike us, without a stain --
Since He shared our lowly place, Let us boldly seek His grace.
Sacrifice and suff'ring over, Now He sits at God's right hand,
Crowned with praise, no more an outcast, His preeminence long-planned;
Such a great High Priest we have, Strong to help, supreme to save.
Love's example, hope's attraction, Faith's beginning and its end,
Pioneer of our salvation, Mighty advocate and friend;
Jesus, high in glory raised, Our ascended Lord be praised!
Soli Deo Gloria
