Today... 'The Lamb'


In heaven there now stands a Lamb as slain
Who sacrificed His life my soul to gain.
He bears the wounds of the price that He paid
when upon the alter this Lamb was laid.

“Worthy is the Lamb, ” heaven’s angels cry.
“Worthy is the Lamb ” is the earth’s reply,
“To receive Power and Might and Wisdom.”
“For His is an everlasting kingdom.”

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Revelation 5: 6
Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

Revelation 5: 12
In a loud voice they sang: 'Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise! '


All quotations ©NIV

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”

The lamb is the theme of all glorified spirits and holy angels (Spurgeon)
