Our Great High Priest Is Sitting

by A.P. Cecil

Tune: Deutschland

1 OUR great High Priest is sitting
At God's right hand above,
For us His hands uplifting,
In sympathy and love;
Whilst here below, in weakness,
We onward speed our way;
In sorrow oft and sickness,
We sigh and groan and pray.

2 Through manifold temptation,
My soul holds on her course,
Christ's mighty intercession
Alone is her resource;
My gracious High Priest's pleadings,
Who on the cross did bleed,
Bring down God's grace and blessings,
Help in each hour of need.

3 O Jesus blessed Saviour,
We hope to see Thee soon,
Who once on earth didst suffer,
Who soon for us wilt come.
'Twas God's most gracious favour
Gave Thee, His Son, to die;
To live our Intercessor;
To plead for us on high.
