BEHOLD THE LAMB FOR SINNERS SLAIN!††

Don Fortner

(Tune: O for a Thousand Tongues #46 CM)

 

Behold the Lamb for sinners slain

Before the world began:

He paid our debt, secured all grace,

In Godís purposes then!

 

Behold the Lamb for sinners slain

Upon the cursed tree:

Godís holy Son (Made to be sin!)

Was slain for you and me!

 

Behold the Lamb for sinners slain

Now seated on His throne:

The chosen seed He has redeemed;

Heíll save them every one!

 

Behold the Lamb for sinners slain!

Let sinners saved by blood

Present themselves a sacrifice,

As kings and priests to God.

 

Behold the Lamb for sinners slain.

In Him all glories meet.

Gladly we cast our crowns of praise

Before His worthy feet!
