The Letter to the Hebrews - in the style of the Psalmist
Jesus you are God’s son, radiating his glory and grace. Greater than the angels you sit on on a throne of power and love That endures for ever and ever. Through you we see God’s splendour. You love justice and hate evil.
I listen to the truth that never changes, it is my rock and anchor. You cheated death for everyone so now I can live. You are my merciful and faithful champion in heaven. My sins are washed clean by your blood.
Jesus you deserve all glory, more faithful than even Moses. You sent the Holy Spirit to me. Let me hear your voice. Keep my heart soft, hold me on the true path. Intercede for me with the Father at the high throne of grace.
Father you have promised rest for all us weary men. All I have to do is believe, just accept your gift of faith. Your word is alive and powerful. I can hide nothing from you I am accountable to you, but through Christ my great High Priest.
Christ you are my great High Priest and source of salvation. Keep me mature in faith, obedient to your ways and strong in love. By your sacrifice and Father’s grace I am saved. Jesus you are My eternal Melchizedek greater than everything.
Repentance is the key to salvation, and faith creates obedience. You Lord gave me hope, I wait patiently for the promise of heaven. By your grace I have a sure and certain hope of my resurrection. You Lord are a secure and strong anchor amid the storms of life.
As Melchizedek stood above Abraham, greatest of the patriarchs, So you Lord rule over men, angels and the whole of creation. You are King of Peace, King of Justice, reigning over all. Holy and blameless the final, greatest and eternal High Priest.
Jesus High Priest, we are your ransomed people. You are my God and my King. Your words and your laws are written on my heart Inscribed there by the Holy Spirit. Don’t cast me into wrath, But intercede with the Father to forgive and forget all my sin.
The old covenant is dead, you Lord freed me from it’s rules and oppression. Without you I was bound, could not escape, but you freed me. Your blood paid the price for my sins. I am free and clothed in your righteousness. You died once for all and for all time.
The law showed men the Father, but as through a glass dimly lit. Your glorious life and sacrifice wash me in brilliant light. I will hold My life to your way with all my strength and will. The law is dead Fulfilled by your death, I am dazzled by the brilliance of heaven.
Your love draws me heavenwards, by faith I trust in the promise Of life and the defeat of death. The patriarchs and prophets of old Lived by faith and through faith. The mighty heroes of old were made strong By faith and obedience. The Holy Spirit has marked my forehead. Halleluiah.
Oh Lord, help me to cast off sin and rivet my eyes on you. You, who sit At the right hand of God, have made me a child of God. You discipline And correct me, refining my soul through love and patience. Open my heart And lead me by hand to the new Jerusalem. Lord you are my helper so whom do I need to fear? Nobody can tear me from you. You never change, lead me to the altar of perpetual praise, the perfect tabernacle. Let me join in the heavenly song, pour your grace and mercy on me as I pour out Praise to you. Grace, mercy and love forever and ever. Amen.
