The beauty of a lamb is clear;
It is gentle and it is meek,
Covered in white garments
Much serenity it seeks.
Lambs are lovely and delightful
And the hardest hearts can melt,
With their tender love and gracious ways
When their sweetness it is felt.
Whereas a wolf is always lurking
To seek and hunt its prey,
With a desire to maul and to kill
Where violence paves his ways.
When Jesus sent His disciples
He made it very clear,
That they will be lambs among the wolves
But with a message not to fear.
Lambs are sacrificial
And their tender lives are brief,
But we can learn profound lessons
When from their book we take a leaf.
Their silence before the shearer
Indicates a level of trust,
And submission to the hand of their master
Where obedience is a must.
When a person is like a lamb
A peacemaker he will be,
Because he sincerely wants to point to God
Where His salvation we can see.
Jesus is the Lamb of God
Who was savaged on the cross,
By the ravenous and vile wolves
Where their violence was embossed.
But He opened not His mouth;
Like a lamb to the slaughter was led,
With the heavy burden of His cross
And the crown of thorns upon His head.
Because the wolves wished to annihilate
Anything that was pure,
Since they couldn’t handle the convicting truth
And had no strength where they’d endure.
A lamb projects a message
That is pure and is true,
And that message is the gospel
With the good news of salvation too.
