A Poem for Lent...
|Image credit: "Lamb" by Angel Ciesniarska|
Abba went into the sheepfold to choose a spotless lamb,
as Moses gave instructions that he got from the I Am.
Our lamb, indeed, was spotless, so I named him Wooly Bright;
we brought him inside to live with us, morning, noon, and night.
I ran my fingers through his coat and fed him from my hand,
I put fresh water in his trough; he’s the best lamb in the land!
Today he’ll be our sacrifice. Moses said this must be done.
He must die that I may live, for I’m a firstborn son.
We’ve been oppressed by slavery; Pharaoh will not let us go,
but God’s mighty arm will save us. We’ll watch His power flow.
Moses told us, take lamb’s blood, and brush it on the lintel
then we will be protected; it almost sounds too simple.
Tonight we will leave Egypt and journey far from home,
but I’ll remember Wooly Bright wherever I may roam.
Someday the world will see in this, God’s salvation plan;
God’s Son will be the sacrifice, the great Passover Lamb!
For as God will use blood of lambs to set His people free,
the precious Blood of Jesus will save sinners…you and me.
