Really Good Friday
Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world:
seeking lost sheep,
seeking black sheep—
the Good Shepherd.
Behold, the Lamb of God, without blemish or defect:
silent before its shearers,
led to the slaughter—
the Passover lamb.
Behold, the Lamb of God, looking as if it had been slain:
slain from the foundation of the world,
author of the Book of Life—
worthy to receive honor and glory and praise.
Behold, the I AM of God, seated on the Throne:
the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David—
who takes away the sin of the world.
