A lamb goes uncomplaining to its death. The pure, free from blemish sacrifice would atone for the sins of man. Today blood sacrifices are unnecessary because the true Lamb of God, Jesus, came to take our place – to be the final sacrifice that washed away every sin and all the guilt connected with it. Jesus was sinless, yet He was willing to carry the sin of the world to the cross – to defeat the devil and the tight hold he had on humanity – to overcome death, be resurrected, to live again in paradise as He has promised will happen to us.
When bruised and injured we do fall, before our Father’s throne
And look upon the lamb once slain for all sins to atone,
Our pain is nothing next to His, our wounds are all but naught.
The blood He shed, His torturous death were all with insult fraught,
But still the Son of God went forth in dignity and strength,
He took our place and bore the cross until His dying breath,
Three days went by. He shunned the grave and rose to life again.
He did this so I too could claim a life in heaven with Him.
Sweet Jesus you have walked the road that I deserved to go.
You did this oh so willingly and You knew just what to do
So when I’m feeling battered and pulled in many ways,
Remind me of the walk you took and please accept the praise.
