The Lamb of God

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29)

Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God
Who takes away our sin
He came the sinless Son of God
To cleanse our hearts within

He hung upon the blood-stained cross
Thinking of you and me
Dying like some hardened criminal
His body in agony

His blood flowed down from the cross
His body tormented with pain
He cried out to His Heavenly Father
But it seemed no answer came

People stood and jeered at Him
Mocking to the end
Who Jesus was and why He came
They couldn’t comprehend

Their hearts were indifferent to the Lord
Their consciences grew ever cold
His mother watched on – unable to bear it
As the sword pierced through her soul

As you try to grasp this picture
The pain that Christ went through
Remember that day you were on His mind
He endured it all for you

Just so you could know His love
And forgiveness for your sins
To know His resurrection power
And to have His life within

He cares that much about your life
He endured the cross for you
Like those who jeered, or those who loved
With Jesus – what will you do?
