Lyrics to Watch The Lamb
Watch The Lamb Video:
Walking on the road to Jerusalem
The time had come to sacrifice again
My two small sons, they walked beside me down the road
The reason that they came was to watch the lamb

And they said, "Daddy, Daddy! What will we see there?
There's so much that we don't understand."
And so I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
And then I said, "Dear children, watch the lamb."

"There will be so many in Jerusalem today,
And we must be sure this little lamb doesn't run away."
And I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
And I said, "Dear children, watch the lamb."

When we reached the city, I knew something must be wrong
There were no joyful worshippers there, no joyful worship songs
And I stood there with my children, in the midst of angry men
Then I heard a crowd cry out, "Let's crucify Him!"

And we tried to leave the city, but we could not get away
Forced to play in this drama a part I did not want to play
Why upon this day were men condemned to die?
And why were we standing right here, where soon they would pass by?

I looked, and I said, "Even now they come."
The first one cried for mercy, the people gave him none
The second one was violent and he was arrogant and loud
I still can hear his angry voice screaming at the crowd

Then someone said, "There's Jesus!", and I scarce believed my eyes
A man so badly beaten, he barely looked alive
Blood poured from His body and the thorns on His brow
Running down the cross, and falling to the ground

I watched Him as He struggled, and I watched Him when He fell
The cross came down upon His back, the crowd began to yell
In that moment I felt such agony, in that moment I felt such loss
Until a Roman soldier grabbed my arm and screamed, "You! Carry His cross!"

At first I tried to resist him, but his hand reached for his sword
So I knelt and I took the cross from the Lord
I put it on my shoulder, and we started down the street
The blood that He'd been shedding was running down my cheek

They led us to Golgotha, they drove nails deep in His feet and hands
On the cross I heard Him pray, "Father, forgive them!"
Never had I seen such love in any other eyes
"Into Thy hands I commit My spirit", He prayed, and then He died

I stood for what seemed like years, lost all sense of time
Then I felt these little hands holding on to mine
My children stood there weeping, and I heard the oldest say
"Father, please forgive us. The lamb ran away!"

"Daddy, Daddy! What have we seen here?
There's so much that we don't understand."
So I took them in my arms, we turned and faced the cross
And I said, "Dear children, watch the Lamb!"
