The Fire of the Cross – v2

The lamb, the sacrifice
holy and pure
unblemished, anointed
a fragrant offering
pleasing to God

Christ on the altar
the fire of the cross
the Spirit within Him
taking on our sin
dying in our place

God, the Messiah
Immanuel, Servant,
walking the way, obedient
drinking the cup of sacrifice
going down into the grave

Rising to paradise
the Spirit ascending
on the other side
from the pit of the tomb
that we may live again
