The Lamb’s Precious Blood

Slavery and bondage, in Egypt we have all lived
Personal plagues affecting each of our lives

Plagues of inherited sin
A darkness needing to be washed

Our need for forgiveness
Our need to be redeemed

God in His infinite wisdom and mercy
Made way for our escape

No afterthought of God
Only His plan and purpose

To “cut” a Covenant for and with His people
A way for us to be “passed over”

The Lamb without spot, without blemish was provided
Slain before the foundation of the world

This Lamb’s blood spilled for the remissions of sins
Sprinkled on the doorposts and lintels of our hearts

Jesus, our Passover Lamb

The Lamb’s precious blood…

Sweated in the Garden of Gethsemane
Ran down His face as the Crown of Thorns was placed upon His head
Soaked the Via Dolorosa with every step from His beaten back
Stained the Cross at Golgotha from the nail-pierced hands and feet
Flowed freely from a Roman spear to His side

God’s great revelation and plan, purposed
Placed Jesus in a tomb for three days

Now our risen Jesus stands between time and eternity
Our entrance to the Throne of God

We are now pardoned and delivered
We have been bought with a price

The atonement paid
The price – The blood of the Son of God

Jesus, our Passover Lamb
Jesus, our Savior

What can wash away my sins, nothing but the blood of Jesus…
