PRAISE YOU O MIGHTY FATHER !
JESUS THE LAMB
Born a gift, a lamb for slay
Resting swaddled upon the manager hay
There, in stillness, silence lay
The King born to be cast away.
Wise men searched in celestial wonder
Worshipped beneath the distant thunder
In hallowed presence amongst cherub wings
The wise men worship the wisest King.
Surrendered Jesus himself for me
Took the sting of death for me
God’s eternal gift to me
Ignites the grateful soul in me.
Perished upon the cross for me,
Punished upon the cross for me
Infant child, innocent lamb
Swells a grateful soul in me.
All harm this moment kept at bay
Heaven hushed upon hallowed hay
Salvation sleeps beneath celestial sea
And rides upon the wings of eternity.
