*Pastor’s Note: A.B. Simpson was a very well respected Canadian preacher, theologian and author who lived from December 15, 1843 to October 29, 1919. My prayer is that you will be blessed and inspired by his poetry as much as I am.


As Jesus walked in the days of old
By Jordan’s sacred flood,
The great Forerunner stood and cried,
“Behold the Lamb of God!”

The Lamb of God! Oh, how it speaks
Of all the precious blood
That pointed down through ages past
To Christ, the Lamb of God!

The Lamb of God! It speaks to me
Beneath my guilty load,
And seems to say, “Just look and live;
Behold the Lamb of God!”

For all our sorrows, sin, and pain,
There’s healing in the blood.
Lift up thy heart, lift up thine eyes,
Behold the Lamb of God!

Lord, let us prove in all its power
The precious, precious blood,
And still, with clearer, stronger faith,
Behold the Lamb of God.

And let us tell that sacred Name
Through all the earth abroad,
Till all our lost and sinful race
Behold the Lamb of God.
