The perfect lamb

“In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you’ ” (Luke 22:20).

O Perfect Lamb of Passover,
Let me not quickly run.
Recount to me the blessed plot,
Tell how the plan was spun
That I, a slave of Egypt’s lusts,
A prisoner of dark dread,
Could be condemned unto a cross
And find you nailed instead.

    Your welcome Petra!

    I wish I knew who wrote it

  3. Well, I’ve googled it and found it in several blogs as belonging to
    -Beth Moore Jesus the One and Only

    It is beautiful, though. šŸ™‚ Blessings!

    Gosh Petra, I had hoped some dead theologian wrote it! But it’s great! Diane have a wonderful blessed Resurrection day also!

  6. Thank God that He provided the Perfect Lamb to take away our sins! A wonderful post to think on this Good Friday. God bless you Teresa, may you have a blessed weekend.

  7. This is such a beautiful reminder, of the vicarious suffering that our Lord and Savior endured, that we might be saved! It should have been me hanging on that Cross that day, but God, took upon Himself what He hated, sinful flesh, that He might die on the Cross that day, to save a wretch like me! Thank you Jesus!

    God bless you!
