Published in 1 hymnal
1 Behold the holy Lamb of God!
Behold the man who bears for us a heavy load.
Holy, Lamb of God,
raised high on the cross
to bear for us the pain and loss.
2 In humble silence forth goes he,
in grief and pain, to bear our sins upon the tree. [Refrain
3 And there, outside the city wall,
high on the cross, they nail the one who saves us all. [Refrain]
4 O, listen to his anguished cry,
'My God, my God, why have you left me here to die?' [Refrain]
5 But, dying on that awful tree,
he pardons all our sinfulness and sets us free. [Refrain]
