The Cleansing Sacrifice

Among You, Moses, the nobles, and elders,
I listen to all the details.
The ark, the tabernacle, the mercy seat,
The fillets, curtains, and veils.
Through measurements and guidance,
You give the instruction,
Along with the significance
Of the specific construction.
With Your chosen people,
You long to commune and abide.
But Holy must not be with unholy.
Uncleanness causes a divide.
You provide a way to be cleansed
Through offering a sacrifice.
The High Priest on the mercy seat
Prepares to pay the price.
Thank You, God, for making a way
To bring us back together.
Jesus became the sacrifice
To unite us forever.
