No More Veil!


Emma Frances Bevan
(1827-1909)

And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split.

Matthew 27:50-51 nasb

Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

Hebrews 10:19-22 nasb

No more veil! God bids me enter
By the new and living way.
Not in trembling hope I venture;
Boldly I His call obey.
There with Him, my God I meet—
God upon the mercy seat!

In the robes of spotless whiteness,
With the blood of priceless worth,
He has gone into that brightness,
Christ rejected from the earth–
Christ accepted there on high,
And in Him do I draw nigh.

Oh, the welcome I have found there,
God in all His love made known!
Oh, the glories that surround there
Those accepted in His Son!
Who can tell the depths of bliss
Spoken by the Father’s kiss?

One with Him, O Lord, before Thee;
There I live, and yet not I.
Christ it is who there adores Thee—
Who more dear, or who more nigh?
All the Father's heart mine own–
Mine – and yet His Son's alone.

All the worth I have before Him
Is the value of the Blood;
I present when I adore Him
Christ, the first-fruits unto God;
Him with joy doth God behold,
Thus is my acceptance told.
