“THE LAMB OF GOD WAS SLAIN FOR US!”
‘Twas such a lonely path He trod
Sin’s awful price for us to pay
Conforming to the Father’s word
To save as many as will believe
He overlooked both self and shame
To redeem us from sin and death
The Jews cried, “This man we condemn!”
And He was nailed to Calvary’s cross
The Father’s heart still longs for those
Who will renounce the world and sin
Remembering that one tragic pose:
“The Lamb of God was slain for us!”
