slaughtered for the cross

the sacrificial lamb
speaking the words of sacrifice
taking on the mantle
the cloak of our sin
His body would be broken
His blood poured out
a new covenant with God
to redeem our very lives
slaughtered for the cross
prepared for the sacrifice
the blood on the lintels
the doorposts of our hearts.
