For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all. (1 Timothy 2:5-6 ESV)
Hymn ELH 388:5-6 Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise
Still for us He intercedes,
His prevailing death He pleads,
Near Himself prepares our place,
Harbinger of human race.
There we shall with Thee remain
Partners in Thy endless reign,
There Thy face unclouded see,
Find our heav’n of heav’ns in Thee.
Heavenly Father, forgive my sins and, when I die, bring me safely to the place prepared for me by Your Son, Jesus Christ, who intercedes for me. In His name I pray. Amen.
