Today... 'Abraham's Seed'
'God will provide, ' Abraham said
as Isaac to the altar was led
and there before them stood a ram
God's merciful provision for Abraham.
No ram was provided for You my lord
for You were the only Lamb of God.
Death on the cross would only do,
there was no reprieve waiting for You.
You showed such obedience to God's plan
and great love was shown on earth to man.
Your death gives life to all You see
when they come to the cross at Calvary.
There was no other way.
For Abraham's Seed to pay.
All the way to Calvary You went
to pay my debt Your life was spent.

Every facet depicting an aspect of the Divine
