  Lamb of God
Thy ewe-lamb, O Jesus, crieth out with a loud voice:
"I love Thee, O my Bridegroom, and, seeking Thee, I suffer.
I am crucified and buried in Thy baptism.
I suffer for Thy sake, that I may reign with Thee;
I die for Thee, that I may live with Thee.
Accept me, who sacrifice myself for Thee with love, as an unblemished offering!"
By her supplications save Thou our souls, in that Thou art merciful.

C F C
Your only Son, no sin to hide
Am F G
But you have sent him from your side
F C Am
To walk upon this guilty sod
C G C
And to become the Lamb of God

C F C
Your gift of love they crucified
Am F G
They laughed and scorned Him as He died
F C Am
The humble King, they named a fraud
C G C
And sacrificed the Lamb of God

Am G C
O Lamb of God, sweet Lamb of God
Am F G
I love the holy Lamb of God
F Em Am
O wash me in His precious blood
C G C
My Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God

C F C
I was so lost I should have died
Am F G
But you have brought me to your side
F C Am
To be led by your staff and rod
C G C
And to be called a lamb of God
