O God, whose blessed Son, our great High Priest,
    has entered once for all into the holy place,
    and ever lives to intercede on our behalf:
 grant that we, sanctified by the offering of his body,
    may draw near with full assurance of faith
    by the way which he has dedicated for us,
    and evermore serve you, the living God;
through your Son our Lord Jesus Christ,
    who lives and reigns with you, O Father,
    and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.

Church of South India

So Christ has now become the High Priest over all the good things that have come.
He has entered that greater, more perfect Tabernacle in heaven,
which was not made by human hands and is not part of this created world.
With his own blood—not the blood of goats and calves—he entered the Most Holy Place once for all time and secured our redemption forever.
