LAMBS AMONG WOLVES

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.
