Today... 'The Lamb of God'
“Behold, The Lamb of God is passing by.”
“Follow Him, ” was John the Baptist’s cry.
For He’ll take away all of this world’s sin
and open heaven’s door to let us in.
As a lamb to the slaughter He was led
pouring out His precious blood so red.
For only He could pay that awful price
and atone for sin by His sacrifice.
Stricken and smitten of His God was He
for my transgressions and iniquity.
There lash by lash my penalty He paid
when upon the alter the Lamb was laid.
Before heaven’s throne the Lamb of God stands
the wounds of the cross in His feet and hands.
There He intercedes and He pleads for me
This Lamb of God Who died to set me free

Poet's Notes about The Poem
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, 'Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, 'A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.'
John 1: 35-37
The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, 'Look, the Lamb of God When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
“The Lamb of God”
