The promised son carrying the wood,
Led up the hill by father in grief.
“Where is the lamb?” asks the child.
“God will provide!” replies the man.
The Anointed One carrying His cross,
Mocked by those He came to save.
“Here is the Lamb!” God reveals.
“I have provided, sinner now come.”
The Lion of Judah risen from the grave,
Leads the children to Kingdom bliss.
“Behold the Lamb who was slain!
Now He stands in Life and Light!”
Dust before, water beyond,
Land ahead, fire behind,
Air around, blood redeemed,
Heaven’s wealth will indwell.
Man was formed, in sin he fell,
Promise made, sacrifice obliged.
Divine King come, to save not lead.
Heaven’s praise is now here.
Christ was sent to save us from sin,
Promise He kept, Sacrifice He became.
His Kingdom eternal, death He conquered.
Heaven’s love now indwells.
How can one man know his destiny?
How can one creature know the truth?
How can one life be so important to God
Yet feel so empty of purpose?
How can one Man make a difference?
How can one Being know our needs?
How can one Life be sacrificed to God
For all with a single purpose?
