1 The true Messiah now appears,
The types are all withdrawn;
So fly the shadows and the stars
Before the rising dawn.
2 Now sacrifice, and offered lambs,
And kids and bullocks slain;
Incense and spice of costly names
Would all be burnt in vain.
3 Aaron must lay his robes away,
No longer off'rings bring,
When God's own Son is sworn to be
Redeemer, Priest and King.
4 He was made sin for us to show
The way of life and love;
For us he gave his life below,
And pleads for us above.
