MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB

HIS NAME WAS JESUS CHRIST

HE WAS THE ONLY SON OF GOD

AND WAS SENT TO PAY THE PRICE



HE GREW INTO A MIGHTY MAN

WITHOUT A SINGLE VICE

JESUS WAS THE ONLY ONE

WHO COULD BE THE SACRIFICE

HE GATHERED TWELVE AROUND HIM

AND TAUGHT THEM WRONG FROM RIGHT

ONE WAS PAID TO BETRAY HIM

THIRTY PIECES WAS THE PRICE

HE HEALED THE SICK AND BLINDED

AND RAISED OTHERS FROM THE DEAD

HE PROMISED WE COULD DO THE SAME

IF BY THE SPIRIT WE'RE LED

THE PROPHETS TOLD OF HIM DYING

THAT HE WOULD HANG UPON A TREE

THE SON OF GOD CAME DOWN TO EARTH

TO PAY THE PRICE FOR YOU AND ME

WHIPPED, SCOURGED, AND REVILED

HIS OWN RECEIVED HIM NOT

WITH THE BLOOD HE SHED UPON THE CROSS

OUR ETERNAL LIFE HE BOUGHT

BY ROMAN LAW HE WAS NAILED TO A CROSS

THROUGH HIS HANDS AND THROUGH HIS FEET

THE BLOOD HE SHED UPON THE CROSS

SENT SATAN TO HIS DEFEAT

JESUS WAS THE PERFECT LAMB

TO MAKE THE SACRIFICE

THE WAGE OF SIN IS ETERNAL DEATH

BUT THIS LAMB HAS PAID THE PRICE

ETERNAL LIFE WAS BOUGHT FOR ME

BY THE BLOOD THAT JESUS SHED

IF YOU'RE NOT COVERED BY THAT BLOOD

TO HIM YOU'RE ETERNALLY DEAD
