Behold the Lamb, A Poem



John 1:29-34

Cain, the jealous sower
spills first the blood of man
Abel, the innocent shepherd
A cry, Behold the lamb

Abram witholds nothing
an angel stays his hand
God will provide the sacrifice
A cry, Behold the lamb

Pharaoh's heart is hardened
Mercy ends in the land
The angel passes over
A cry, Behold the lamb

John by waters edge
Many baptized by his hand
a dove descends upon the Christ
A cry, Behold the Lamb

The Heavens all cry out
Here is the Son of Man
Holy, Holy, Holy
A cry, Behold the Lamb

Another Christ at altar
host and chalice in his hand
with trembling voice and body
A cry, Behold the Lamb
