Watch The Lamb

Ray Boltz

 CGAmAm7
 Walking on the road to Jerusalem 
 FGC
 The time had come to sacrifice again
 GAmAm7
My two small sons, they walked beside me on the road
 FGC
The reason that they came was to watch the Lamb

 GAmAm7
Daddy, daddy what will we see there?
 FGC
 There's so much that we don't understand
 GAmAm7
So I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
 FGC
And then I said, Dear children watch the lamb

 AmAm7FAm
 For there will be so many in Jerusalem today
 Am7FG
We must be sure the Lamb doesn't run away
 CGAmAm7
And I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
 FGC
 Then I said, Dear children watch the Lamb

 GAmAm7
When we reached the city I knew something must be wrong
 FGC
 There were no joyful worshippers no joyful worship songs
 GAmAm7
I stood there with my children in the midst of angry men
 FAm
And then I heard the crowd cry out,
 G
Crucify him

 AmAm7F
 We tried to reach the city, but we could not get away
 AmAm7FAm
 Forced to play in this drama, a part I did not wish to play
 G
Why upon this day were men condemned to die?
 AmAm7GF
 Why were we standing here where soon they would pass by?

 CGAmAm7
 I looked and said, even now they come
 FGC
 The first one cried for mercy, the people gave him none
 GAmAm7
The second one was violent, he was arrogant and loud
 FGC
I still can hear his angry voice screaming at the crowd

 AmAm7F
 Then someone said there's Jesus and I scarce believed my eyes
 FAm
A man so badly beaten he barely looked alive

Blood poured from his body from the thorns upon his brow
running down the cross and falling to the ground

 GAmAm7
I watched him as he struggled I watched him as he fell
 FGC
 The cross came down upon his back, the crowd began to yell
 GAmAm7
In that moment I felt such agony, in that moment i felt such loss
 FGCAmG
 Until a Roman soldier grabbed my arm and screamed, You, carry his cross!

 AmAm7F
 At first I tried to resist him then his hand reached for his sword
 AmAm7F
And so I knelt and took the cross from the Lord
 GCG
 Placed it on my shoulder and started down the street
 AmAm7F
The blood that he'd been shedding was running down my cheek

 CGAmAm7
 They led us to Golgotha they drove nails deep in his feet and hands
 FGC
And yet upon the cross I heard him pray, "Father forgive them"
 CGAmAm7
 Oh, never have I seen such love in any other eyes
 FGC
Into thy hands I commit my spirit he prayed and then he died

 AmAm7F
 I stood for what seemed like years I'd lost all sense of time
 AmFAm7
 Until I felt two tiny hands holding tight to mine
 CG
 My children stood there weeping, I heard the oldest say
 FGC
Father please forgive us the Lamb ran away

 GAmAm7
Daddy, daddy, what have we seen here?
 FGC
 There's so much that we don't understand
 GAmAm7
So I took them in my arms and we turned and faced the cross
 FGC
And then I said, Dear children watch the Lamb
