Boltz, Ray - Watch The Lamb Lyrics

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
"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 then I said dear children
"Watch the lamb
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 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
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 this drama
A part I did not wish to play
Why upon this day were men condemned to die?
Why were we all standing here
When soon they would pass by?

I looked and said
"Even now they come"
The first one pleaded 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
I watched Him as 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 shoulders
And started down the street
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
And then He died

I stood for what seemed like years
I lost all sense of time
Until I felt two tiny hands
Holding tight to 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"
