1. Sinners, behold the Lamb of God
Who takes away our guilt;
Look to the precious, priceless blood,
That Jews and Gentiles spilt.

2. From Heaven He came to seek and save,
Leaving His blest abode;
To ransom us Himself He gave;
Behold the Lamb of God.

3. Sinners, to Jesus then draw near,
Invited by His word;
The chief of sinners need not fear,
Behold the Lamb of God.

4. Spirit of grace, to us apply
Immanuel’s precious blood;
That we may, with Thy saints on high,
Behold the Lamb of God.
