"Great High Priest"

The author of Hebrews speaks of our Great High Priest in chapter seven, verses twenty-four through twenty-eight. 

 "But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore."

 Here are the lyrics for "Great High Priest":

"Great High Priest"

Great High Priest in heaven above,
You are the Holy King of Love.

You understand my desp'rate need,
For me You stand and intercede.

You have promised to hear my call,
Your blood has saved me from the fall.
Tempted were You as I have been,
Yet You are Holy, free of sin.

Boldly standing through Your grace,
I come and seek Your holy face.
With confidence I will draw near,
I have no doubts, I have no fear.

O Great High Priest, to you I cry!
Look upon me see my plight;
It was for me that you died,
Lord, fill my soul with your light.
