A nature of sin, a soiled soul,
A people hostile against their God.
The relationship He initiated is broken,
Their unholiness requires a rod.
Their sin deserved His immense wrath,
For His perfection could not be near
Their dirt and filth
Demanded the death of all this earthly sphere.
The altar, stained with blood.
An animal’s death was required,
The shedding of blood for forgiveness.
