Day of Atonement (For Yom Kippur)

Our Great High Priest 
Left His glorious robe behind 
When God became flesh 
And dwelled with mankind 

Amid goats and calves, 
Christ entered the world, leaving heaven itself 
To take away sin and death 
By offering His own blood Himself

He bore our sin, 
And our judgement He faced
So we could be made holy 
By God's mercy and grace 

And thus enter in, 
To a new and living way 
Where God's laws, 
Are within our hearts placed 

Then we can draw near 
With sincerity of heart 
Because of the assurance 
That our faith imparts 

And hold unswervingly 
To the hope that we profess 
For God is faithful to 'make good'
On His promises

Inspired from Hebrews 9:11-10:23 after reading this article:

Exalt His Excellence

I exalt You for You are excellent
I adore You for You from heaven sent
Your Only Son, the only One
Who for my sins would die
Your great name, I exalt and magnify
For You are magnificent
I worship You
For You are worthy of all praise
You are good and it is good
To ever sing Your praise

Stephen Hawking's Theory

Stephen Hawking's theory 
Of the universe is flawed
Because, if it is ever-expanding
Why is there no room for God?
It's true God is grander
Yet He doesn't change
Nor fit into an equation or box
That indeed would be quite strange
Yes, man can design and create
A container for things
(That thinks not, nor reasons,
Nor worships, nor sings)
That is merely a vessel 
Used for safe-keeping or travel
For a vast scope of contents
That's no great mystery to unravel
Just open eyes to gaze upon
What's conclusively plain to perceive
Ergo, if you expand your vision 
Beyond the parameter of knowledge, 
You can practically believe
