“Christ has obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better.” Hebrews 8:6


Lord Jesus, you’re more excellent

Than Moses’ ancient covenant:

God's Law you perfectly obeyed

And on the cross its curse you paid.


My Royal Priest is excellent

Above the dying priests who went

In yearly terror through the veil—

But once for all Christ did prevail.


Lord Jesus, you’re more excellent

Than all the guardian angels sent

To guide our steps both day and night,

Since Jesus guards with sovereign might.


Great Savior, you’re more excellent

Than all the Devil’s arrows spent

In furious rage against the ones

For whom Christ died to make his sons.


Kind Jesus, you’re more excellent

Than doubts and troubles I invent;

Your life laid down, my victory won—

My Advocate, God’s holy Son.


O Christ, you are most excellent,

By th’new and better covenant:

Redeeming Love who took my part,

Inscribed your Law upon my heart.


O Righteous One, most excellent,

Your cross fulfilled the covenant;

O Worthy One, who took my place,

I long to see you face to face.
