~ Lamb of Calvary
Precious Lamb of Calvary,
The world knew not your sacrifice.
Yet you hung upon the tree,
That all might know eternal life.
As each gasping breath you took,
Your thoughts centered on the lost.
Forgiveness overshadowed pain.
Love kept you on the cross.
You came, you died, yet rose again,
Your spirit, the grave couldn't hold.
Lifted to the heavens,
Just as the prophets foretold.
Death's grip forever has been loosed,
It holds no power o'er me.
Christ paid the price, and claimed my life,
Blessed Lamb of Calvary.
