One Death

And Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed his last. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom.
Mark 15:37-38

One death accomplished what my life never would
peace with God
judgment's justice due
satisfaction in sacrifice
all in that moment as Jesus died nailed to the cold wood

One death and the veil was torn no more divided
access to the Father
no priest required
full relationship offered
because the Son made the way to the Father and with us sided

One death brought forgiveness and the offer of life
my Savior
my Redeemer
my Great High Priest
and death is no longer forever, sin's dominion no longer strife
