Behold the Lamb is the first song on our new 7 song EP that can be downloaded for free here:
This song was born in our house church on an acoustic guitar one Sunday morning. As we began worship I felt the overwhelming need to take our eyes off of ourselves and our circumstances and focus our gaze intently upon Jesus on the Cross. I had been wondering if it was possible to write a whole song based on the cry of John the Baptist in John 1 regarding the Lamb of God. The Holy Spirit caused this chorus to erupt just as we began worship that one Sunday and ever since it is one of my favorite songs to begin worship with. Though the phrases are simple I have personally witnessed light bulbs going off in peoples heads as the song is sung. It’s kind of a “Oh yeah, that’s what worship is about,” moment which helps people enter into actually beholding the Lamb of God. I thank Jesus for giving us this song to worship Him!
