Lamb of God

If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

Lamb of God, blameless one;
dearly loved, only Son,
cursed and scourged as he is hung
on a cross of degradation.
Man of grief, crowned with thorns.
How his heart and flesh are torn
as our sins and guilt are borne
in his selfless act of mercy.

Worthy, worthy is the Lamb.
Glory, glory to the Lamb of God.

Lamb of God, see him laid;
cold as stone, in the grave.
Now the awesome debt is paid
and the curse of sin is lifted.
But before daylight’s hour
death must yield to greater power,
no, the tomb can’t hold him now
for the King of Life is risen!
 
Lamb of God - lifted high;
reigning at the Father’s side.
There, forever glorified,
he will be the judge of nations.
And redeemed, we will stand
at the throne of the Lamb
giving glory, praise and thanks
as he rules his new creation.
 

I am always reminded around Easter time of Jesus’ costly sacrifice for sin that drew us back so wonderfully into relationship with our Father God. How great was his love for us that he allowed himself to become sin even though he was the very antithesis of sin – the perfect, spotless Lamb of God.  In this song I have related the events of Easter to the vision of Jesus in Revelation as the glorious, risen Lord – the Lamb who is at the centre of heaven’s throne where he is forever ‘worthy’ to be praised.  The song has been through many revisions & has taken about 2 years to finalise – many thanks to Joel for substantially writing the melody for the verses.

powerful stuff, nice one judy! soaring tune, powerful words.
Gavin Ball at 13:10 on 16th March 2013
Sorry; not my sort of music. Too many musical cliches. Are the repetitions of words really necessary? Music does not fit the glory of the Resurrection described in vv 2 and 3.
Wendy Hawkins at 06:04 on 16th March 2013
We'll be using this song at Easter this year at our Church in Melbourne Australia
Ken Westwood at 20:31 on 15th March 2013
Super. Solid. There. Melodic. Strong. Thank you .
Mary Smail at 09:34 on 14th March 2013
Excellent tune and words - decidedly Keith Getty-esque (that's a compliment! :)
at 09:01 on 14th March 2013
lovely song for all to share thank you.
renee guy at 14:07 on 13th March 2013
Well crafted and balanced lyric and well worth the time effort that went into completing it. I feel the melody does effectively serve the first two verses. I'm not a singer but would think that the sorrow and grief can be effectively emoted by the singers and the use of dynamics by the band as is demonstrated on the MP3 track. Many thanks for this song!!
Peter Arnstein at 16:18 on 12th March 2013
It's rich, mature and nourishing. Well done all involved and thank you!
Ben Atkins at 14:51 on 12th March 2013
I agree with Shirley Davies' comment, "Good words but the tune conveys nothing of the sadness and grief of this act of sacrifice." especially for v.1 and 2.
But anyway, thanks for sharing this song.
Theodora Hung at 06:52 on 12th March 2013
Lovely - we'll use the SATB with our Choir - it will be splendid.
Gary Philbrick at 09:13 on 11th March 2013
I love this new song. The tune beautifully makes the words come to life. I have recommended this to be used in our church.
Kathleen Shepherd at 08:46 on 11th March 2013
Good words but the tune conveys nothing of the sadness and grief of this act of sacrifice. it is fine for the final verse.
Shirley Davies at 03:48 on 11th March 2013
I like it very much and will certainly pass it on to our music group.
Jacqueline Martyn at 03:11 on 11th March 2013
Great! Thank you
jenny newman at 08:25 on 9th March 2013
Any chance you could make individual tracks available that can be used within programs like Ableton Live? This would be such a blessing to those of us without enough musicians to do your music justice...
Ken Granger at 08:23 on 9th March 2013
Love it going to try it out on my home group,great words
Keep up the your good word and god bless
Alison Akehurst at 11:46 on 8th March 2013
