O how blessed is the priest's life

O how blessed is the priest's life,
  Christ to him is all in all:
All His clothing, food, and dwelling,
  And His portion therewithal.
  O how blessed is the priest's life,
  Christ to him is all in all:
All his clothing, food, and dwelling,
    And his portion therewithal.
All the clothing of his service
  Is the beauty of the Lord;
Glorious splendor do his garments,
  Breast and shoulder-piece afford.
When in sacrifice he offers
  Christ to God as God has willed,
Then as food he doth enjoy Him
  And is with His riches filled.
Putting on the Lord as clothing,
  Christ without he doth express;
Eating, drinking, with Him mingled,
  Christ within doth him possess.
Holy, glorious is their dwelling,
  'Tis the increase of the Lord;
Here the priests built up together
  Unto God a house afford.
All his portion, all his living,
  Everything the priests possess—
All is Christ and Christ forever,
  In His all-inclusiveness.

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people acquired for a possession, so that you may tell out the virtues of him who has called you out of darkness Into His marvelous light...

A priest is wholly focused on bringong God to men and men to God, with no self, no opinion. Every believer should have such a priestly living.
