Watch The Lamb  Ray Boltz



[C]Walking on the [G]road to Je[Am]rusalem[Am7]
[F]The time had come to [G]sacrifice a[C]gain
My two small [G]sons, they [Am]walked beside me on the [Am7]road
The [F]reason that they came [G]was to watch the [C]Lamb
Daddy, [G]daddy what will [Am]we see [Am7]there?
[F]There's so much that [G]we don't under[C]stand
So I told them of [G]Moses and [Am]Father Abra[Am7]ham
And [F]then I said, Dear [G]children watch the [C]lamb
[Am]For there will be so [Am7]many in Je[F]rusalem [Am]today
We must be sure the [Am7]Lamb does[F]n't run [G]away
And I [C]told them of [G]Moses and [Am]Father Abra[Am7]ham
[F]Then I said, Dear [G]children watch the [C]Lamb
When we reached the [G]city I knew [Am]something must be [Am7]wrong
[F]There were no joyful [G]worshippers no joyful worship so[C]ngs
I stood there with my [G]children in the [Am]midst of angry [Am7]men
And then I [F]heard the crowd cry [Am]out,
Crucify [G]him
[Am]We tried to reach the [Am7]city, but [F]we could not get away
[Am]Forced to play in this [Am7]drama, a [F]part I did not wish to [Am]play
Why upon this day were men condemned to [G]die?
[Am]Why were we standing [Am7]here [G]where soon they would pass [F]by?
[C]I looked and [G]said, [Am]even now they [Am7]come
[F]The first one cried for [G]mercy, [C]the people gave him none
The second one was [G]violent, he was [Am]arrogant and [Am7]loud
I still can [F]hear his angry voice [G]screaming at the [C]crowd
[Am]Then someone said there's [Am7]Jesus and I [F]scarce believed my eyes
A man so badly beaten [F]he barely looked [Am]alive
Blood poured from his body from the thorns upon his brow
running down the cross and falling to the ground

I watched him as he [G]struggled [Am]I watched him as he [Am7]fell
[F]The cross came down upon his [G]back, the crowd began to [C]yell
In that moment I felt such [G]agony, in that [Am]moment i felt such [Am7]loss
[F]Until a Roman soldier grabbed [G]my arm and screamed, [C]You, [Am]carry his [G]cross!

[Am]At first I tried to resist [Am7]him then his hand [F]reached for his sword
And so I [Am]knelt and [Am7]took the [F]cross from the Lord
[G]Placed it on my shoulder and [C]started down the [G]street
The [Am]blood that he'd been she[Am7]dding [F]was running down my cheek
[C]They led us to [G]Golgotha they drove [Am]nails deep in his feet and [Am7]hands
And [F]yet upon the cross I heard him pray, "[G]Father forgive [C]them"
[C]Oh, never have I seen [G]such love [Am]in any other [Am7]eyes
Into thy [F]hands I commit my spirit [G]he prayed and then he [C]died
[Am]I stood for what seemed like [Am7]years I'd lost [F]all sense of time
[Am]Until I felt two tiny hands [F]holding tight to [Am7]mine
[C]My children stood there [G]weeping, I heard the oldest say
Father please forgive us [F]the Lamb [G]ran [C]away
Daddy, [G]daddy, what have [Am]we seen [Am7]here?
[F]There's so much that [G]we don't under[C]stand
So I took them in my [G]arms and we [Am]turned and faced the [Am7]cross
And [F]then I said, Dear [G]children watch the [C]Lamb
