Watch The Lamb - YouTube Videos and Lyrics

Words and Music by Ray Boltz

Walking on the road to Jerusalem
The time had come to sacrifice again
My two small sons they walked 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
And 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
And I said, "Dear children, watch the lamb."

When we reached the city, I knew something must be wrong
There were no joyful worshippers, no joyful worship songs
And I stood there with my children, in the midst of angry men
Then I heard a crowd cry out, "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 can still 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 and falling to the ground

I watched as He struggled
And I watched Him when He fell
The cross came down upon His back
And the crowd began to yell
In that moment I felt such agony
In that moment I felt such loss
Till the Roman soldier grabbed my arm and screamed
"YOU! Carry his cross!"

At first I tried to resist him
But his hand reached for his sword
So I knelt and I took
The cross from the Lord
I put it on my shoulder
We started down the street
And the blood that He'd been shedding
Was running down my cheek...

They led us to Golgatha
They drove nails deep in His feet and hands
And on the cross, I heard Him pray,
"Father, forgive them..."
Never have I seen such love in any other eyes
"Into Thy hands I commit my spirit,"
He prayed, then He died.

I stood for what seemed like years
I lost all sense of time
Then I felt two tiny hands holding onto mine
My children stood there weeping
And I heard the oldest say
"Father please forgive us,
The lamb, ran away.

"Daddy daddy, what've 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
And I said, "Dear children,
Watch the LAMB..."

Though He was harshly treated, He submitted and opened not His mouth; like a lamb led to the slaughter or a sheep before the shearers, He was silent and opened not His mouth. - Isaiah 53:7 NAB
