The Curtain






Matthew 27:50-51 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.

The Curtain

Long ago there was a place
that we could never see.
Only pure and holy ones
Could be found there on their knees.
But then God sent His only son
A lamb in purest form.
He gave His life for all of us
And the curtain, it was torn.
There's nothing standing in our way
NO fear, no sin, no shame,
No condemnation blocking us
From calling on His name.
We need no lamb, no sacrifice
To speak right to our Lord.
The final sacrifice was made
And the curtain, it was torn.
Today we go straight to our God,
No reservations, no doubt.
Nothing stands in our way,
Our sin can't keep us out.
We are loved, 
We are welcomed
With acceptance from the Lord.
And nothing stands between us now
Since the curtain, it was torn.
