Around the holiest place where all was dark
And seen by the high priest just once a year
God had a system centred in the ark.
But now since light has shone to cast out fear
God has a system centred in one Man
Through whom His grace and love to men appear.
According to His past eternal plan
God has a system centred in His Christ
Whose worth was known before the worlds began.
Since against sin Christ’s sacrifice sufficed
God has a system centred in His Son,
Whose value before God cannot be priced.
Thus God delights that all He has begun
Centres in Him by whom the work was done.
