A Sacrificial Lamb,
Is not at all the picture,
The Hebrews did expect,
And most could not accept.
Sentencing you to death,
The man that was just exalted.
Finding fault in all you said and did,
Contrary to what the law forbid.
While fulfilling every Word,
Prophesied about you,
Even those who knew the Torah,
Still put you through the horror.
Death by crucifixion,
After being scourged and mocked.
You allowed it all.
The start of Satan’s fall.
A God turned Man,
Who felt the pain,
More than anyone could imagine.
This is the Passion.
Nothing could have stopped you,
From fulfilling your Father’s will.
“Can you reconcile us back to Him?”
“Just wait for my return.”
You didn’t have to do it.
An army angel you could have called,
To save you from your death.
Instead you offered your last breath,
As the bridge from death to life.
Getting in position,
To fight your biggest foe.
The Devil has to go.
You knew no other way,
To save your people from a greater horror,
Of living an eternity.
Apart from you in glory.
You became a Savior,
That day upon the cross.
Paying the price for everlasting life.
The unblemished lamb was sacrificed.
