I know I posted this last Easter – but, it is one of my favorite songs in the world!
Have a beautiful day! Happy Easter!
Watch The Lamb
By: Ray Boltz
Walking on the road to Jerusalem
The time had come to sacrifice again
My two small sons
They walk beside me down the road
The reason that they came
was to watch the lamb.
They said Daddy, daddy,
What will we see there
There’s so much that we don’t understand
So I told them of Moses and father Abraham
Then I said dear children watch the lamb
There will be so many in Jerusalem today,
We must be sure this little lamb doesn’t run away,
And I told them of Moses and father Abraham
Then I said dear children watch the lamb.
When we reached the city
I knew something must be wrong
There were no joyful worshipers there
No joyful worship songs,
I stood there with my children
in the midst of angry men,
Then I heard a crowd cry out
“Let’s Crucify Him!”
We tried to leave the city
but we could not get away,
Forced to play in this drama
a part I did not want to play,
Why upon this day
were men condemned to die,
Why were we standing right here,
Where soon they would pass by.
I looked and I said, even now they come,
The first one cried for mercy the people gave him none,
The second one was violent,
He was arrogant and loud,
I still can hear his angry voice
screaming at the crowd,
Then someone said there’s Jesus
I scarce believed my eyes,
A man so badly beaten
He barely looked alive,
Blood poured from His body,
From the thorns on His brow,
Running down the cross,
Falling to the ground.
I watched Him as He struggled,
I watched Him when He fell,
The cross came down upon His back,
The crowd began to yell,
In that moment I felt such agony,
In that moment I felt such loss,
Till a Roman soldier grabbed my arm
and screamed, you, carry His cross.
At first I tried to resist him,
Then his hand reached for his sword,
So I knelt and took
the cross from the Lord,
I put it on my shoulder,
We started down the street,
The blood that he’d been shedding
was running down my cheek.
They led us to Golgotha,
They drove nails deep in His feet on the cross I heard Him pray
Father, forgive them.
Never have I seen such love
in any other eyes,
Into thy hands I commend my spirit
He prayed then He died,
I stood for what seemed like years, lost all sense of time
then I felt these little hands
holding onto mine,
My children stood there weeping,
I heard the oldest say,
Father please forgive us, the lamb ran away.
What have we seen here,
There’s so much
that we don’t understand,
So I took them in my arms,
we turned and faced the cross,
Then I said dear children
Watch the Lamb
