Behold the Lamb, A Poem

Posted by James Hahn on


John 1:29-34

Cain, the jealous sower,
Spills first the blood of man.
Abel, the innocent shepherd,
A cry, Behold the lamb.

Abram withholds nothing,
An angel stays his hand.
God will provide the sacrifice,
A cry, Behold the lamb.

Pharaoh's heart is hardened,
Mercy ends in the land.
The angel passes over,
A cry, Behold the lamb.

John by waters edge,
Many baptized by his hand.
A dove descends upon the Christ,
A cry, Behold the Lamb.

The Heavens all cry out,
Here is the Son of Man.
Holy, Holy, Holy,
A cry, Behold the Lamb.

Another Christ at altar,
Host and chalice in his hand.
With trembling voice and body,
A cry, Behold the Lamb.
