The Lamb Climbing the Cross

The unblemished lamb
alone in the dark
the Garden of Gethsemane

The perfect sacrifice
taking on our sin
the bitter cup to his lips

Obedient, a servant of God
the lamb climbing the cross
atoning sacrifice for our sin
for our sin, what a cost

Matthew 26:39
“And he went a little further, and fell on his face,
and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible,
let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will,
but as thou wilt”. (KJV)
