A Lamb Goes Uncomplaining Forth

1- A Lamb goes uncomplaining forth, the guilt of all men bearing; and laden with the sins of earth, none else the burden sharing! Goes patient on, grows weak and faint, to slaughter led without complaint, that spotless life to offer; bears shame, and stripes, and wounds and death, anguish and mockery, and saith, "Willing all this I suffer."

2- This Lamb is Christ, the soul's great Friend, the Lamb of God, our Savior; Him God the Father chose to send to gain for us His favor. "Go forth, My Son," the Father saith, "and free men from the fear of death, from guilt and condemnation. The wrath and stripes are hard to bear, but by Thy Passion men shall share the fruit of Thy salvation."
