     1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. 4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. 5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

     7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. 14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.(KJV)

1. The death of Jesus Christ, our Lord, 
We celebrate with one accord; 
It is our comfort in distress, 
Our heart’s sweet joy and happiness. 

2. He blotted out with His own blood 
The judgment that against us stood; 
He full atonement for us made, 
And all our debt He fully paid. 

3. That this is now and ever true 
He gives an earnest ever new: 
In this His holy Supper here 
We taste His love so sweet, so near. 

4. His Word proclaims, and we believe. 
That in this Supper we receive 
His very body, as He said, 
His very blood for sinners shed. 

5. A precious food is this indeed,– 
It never fails us in our need,– 
A heavenly manna for our soul, 
Until we safely reach our goal. 

6. Oh, blest is each believing guest 
Who in this promise finds His rest; 
For Jesus will in love abide 
With those who do in Him confide. 

7. The guest that comes with true intent 
To turn to God and to repent, 
To live for Christ to die to sin, 
Will thus a holy life begin. 

8. They who His Word do not believe, 
This food unworthily receive, 
Salvation here will never find,– 
May we this warning keep in mind! 

9. Help us sincerely to believe 
That we may worthily receive 
Thy Supper and in Thee find rest. 
Amen, he who believes is blest.
