Devil Destroyed

"Aaron... blessed the people: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people" (Leviticus 9:23).  "By this I know that Thou favorest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me" (Psalm 41:11).  "We see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death... that through death He might destroy... the devil... that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people" (Hebrew 2:9-17). 

The glory of the Lord appeared
To all the people Aaron blessed. 
This was the glory Satan feared
Which our High Priest would manifest. 

By this we know we have God's favor,
Because our enemy has failed
To triumph over Christ our Savior,
Our great High Priest who has prevailed! 

Beholding Jesus, we can see
The glory He foresaw ahead. 
Through death He won the victory
And thereby crushed the serpent's head. 

O Lord, our Hero and High Priest,
Our hearts are rightly overjoyed
As captives whom You have released
Because the devil is destroyed.
