When You Found the Lamb Unblemished (Did You Recognize The Truth?)

 

 

“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the LORD appeared to them, and the glory of the LORD shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the LORD. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."- Luke 2: 8-12

When You Found the Lamb Unblemished (Did You Recognize The Truth?)

 

When you found The Truth Unblemished,

Did you tremble, sir, with fear?

Did you find Him in a manger

On that foretold midnight clear?

 

When you found The Truth Unblemished,

Could you hear the angels sing?

Were the wise men fast approaching?

Did you bow before The King?

 

When you found The Truth Unblemished,

Were you then on Holy Ground?

Was the Lamb of God before you?

Did the Word in you resound?

 

When you found The Truth Unblemished,

Did your heart and mind rejoice?

Was amazing Grace apparent?

Could you hear Isaiah’s voice?1

 

When you found The Truth Unblemished,

Did you recognize the cost2?

Did you grasp the implication

Of this Lamb upon the cross?

 

When you found The Truth Unblemished,

Was it clear what was to be?

Did you mourn the curse within us

When we nailed Him to the tree3?

 

* * *

 

When you found The Truth Unblemished,

Did the Spirit in you start?

When you heard the Son’s proposal?

Was your “Yes, Lord!” from the heart?

 

When you found The Truth Unblemished,

Did you die with Him, my friend?

When He called you, were you taken?

Did He raise you born again4?
