God Will Provide a Lamb

Genesis 22:1-14 & Hebrews 11:17-19

Three days journey to the sacred place
A boy and a man with a sorrowful face
Tortured yet faithful to God’s command
To take the life of son with his own hands

Chorus
God will provide a Lamb
To be offered up in your place
A sacrifice so spotless and clean
To take all your sin away

Here’s wood and fire, where’s the sacrifice
A questioning voice and the innocent eyes
Is the son of laughter who you waited for
To die like a lamb to please the Lord

Chorus
A gleaming knife, an accepted choice
A rush of wind and an angel’s voice
A ram in the thicket caught by his horns
And a new age of trusting the Lord is born

For God has provided a Lamb
He was offered up in your place
What Abraham was asked to do he has done
He’s offered his only son
What Abraham was asked to do he has done
He’s offered his only son
