[size=4]Watch the Lamb[/size=4] Walking on the road to Jerusalem, The time had come to sacrifice again, My two small sons, They walked beside me on the road, The reason that they came was to watch the lamb. [i][b]Daddy, daddy, What will we see there? There's so much that we don't understand[/b][/i], So I told them of Moses and father Abraham, 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, Then I said, dear children watch the lamb. When we reached the city, I knew something must be wrong, There were no joyful worshipers, No joyful worship songs, I stood there with my children in the midst of angry men, Then I heard the crowd cry out [i][b]Crucify Him![/b][/i] 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 standing here, Where soon they would pass by. I looked and said, Even now they come, The first one cried for mercy, The people gave him none, The second one was violent, He was arrogant and loud, I still here 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 forms upon His brow, Running down the cross, Falling to the ground. I watched Him as He struggled, I watched Him as He fell, The cross came down upon His back, The crowd began to yell, In that moment I felt such agony, In that moment I felt such loss, Till a Roman soldier grabbed my arm and screamed, [i][b]You, carry His cross![/b][/i] At first I tried to resist him, Then his hand reached for his sword, So I knelt and took the cross from the Lord, I placed it on my shoulder, And started down the street, The blood that He'd been shedding was running down my cheek. They led us to Golgotha, They drove nails deep in His feet and hands, Yet upon the cross I heard Him pray [i][b]Father, forgive them![/b][/i] Oh, never have I seen such love in any other eyes, [i][b]Into thy hands I commit my spirit[/b][/i] He prayed and then He died, I stood for what seemed like years, I'd lost all sense of time until I felt two tiny hands holding tight to mine, The children stood there weeping, I heard the oldest say, [i][b]Father please forgive us, The lamb ran away.[/b][/i] [i][b]Daddy, daddy, What have we seen here? There's so much that we don't understand,[/b][/i] So I took them in my arms, And we turned and faced the cross, Then I said dear children, Watch the Lamb. [>]:)]

Thanks, [b]Brouhaha[/b], I go to his concerts anytime he gets anywhere near Dallas! Yes, 'Thank You' is a great song! At the last concert he told the story behind his writing of that song, it was very inspirational. I love the lyrics of all of his songs: [size=4]Thank You[/size=4] I dreamed I went to Heaven You were there with me We walked upon the streets of gold Beside the crystal sea We heard these angels singing Then someone called your name You turned and saw this young man And he was smiling as he came He said "Friend you may not know me now" And then he said "But wait - "You used to teach my Sunday school When I was only eight And every week you would say a prayer Before the class would start And one day when you said that prayer I asked Jesus in my heart." Chorus: Thank you for giving to the Lord I am a life that was changed Thank you for giving to the Lord I am so glad you gave Then another man stood before you He said "Remember the time A missionary came to your church His pictures made you cry You didn't have much money But you gave it anyway Jesus took that gift you gave And that's why I'm in Heaven today" Repeat Chorus One by one they came Far as your eyes could see Each life somehow touched By your generosity Little things that you had done Sacrifices you made They were unnoticed on this earth In Heaven now proclaimed [b]And I know up in Heaven You're not supposed to cry But I am almost sure There were tears in your eyes As Jesus took your hand And you stood before the Lord He said "My child look around you Great is your reward."[/b] Repeat Chorus.
