WATCH THE LAMB

Watch The Lamb
(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 on the road
The reason that they came was to watch the lamb.

Daddy, Daddy, what will we see there?
There's so much we don't understand
So I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
And then I said, "dear children, watch the lamb."

For there will be so many in Jerusalem today
We must be sure the lamb doesn't run away
And I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
And then 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.
I stood there with my children
in the midst of angry men
And then I heard the crowd cry out:

"CRUCIFY HIM!"

We tried to leave the city but we could not get away
Forced to play in the drama
A part I did not want to play
Why upon this day were men condemned to die?
Why were we standing here where soon they would pass by?

I looked and 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 still can 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 upon His brow
Running down the cross and falling to the ground

I watched Him as He struggled,
I watched Him as He fell
The cross came down upon His back,
The angry crowd began to yell
In that moment I felt such agony
In that moment I felt such loss
Until a Roman soldier grabbed my arm and screamed,

"YOU CARRY HIS CROSS!"

At first I tried resist him
Then his hand reached for his sword
And so I knelt and took the cross from the Lord
I placed it on my shoulder and started down the street
The blood that He'd been shedding was
running down my cheek

They led us to Golgotha
They drove nails deep in His feet and hands
And yet upon the cross I heard Him pray
"Father forgive them."

Oh, never have I seen such love in any other eyes
"Into Thy hands I commit My spirit" He prayed
And then He died

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

Daddy, Daddy what did we see here?
There's so much we don't understand

So I took them in my arms
and we turned and faced the cross

And then I said dear children,

WATCH THE LAMB
