6 Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. 7 But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:

     8 The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: 9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; 10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. 11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

     15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.(KJV)

1. There is a fountain filled with blood 
Drawn from Immanuel’s veins, 
And sinners plunged beneath that flood 
Lose all their guilty stains. 

2. The dying thief rejoiced to see 
That fountain in his day; 
And there have I, as vile as he, 
Washed all my sins away. 

3. Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood 
Shall never lose its power 
Till all the ransomed Church of God 
Be saved to sin no more. 

4. E’er since by faith I saw the stream 
Thy flowing wounds supply, 
Redeeming love has been my theme 
And shall be till I die. 

5. When this poor lisping, stammering tongue 
Lies silent in the grave, 
Then in a nobler, sweeter song 
I’ll sing Thy power to save.
