The Pharisees have taken title

To the Lamb of God their idol.


For burnt offerings there is no need.

By his Blood they’ve all been freed.


For them he’s just a sacrifice;

A scapegoat who has paid the price.


Never mind what he said or did;

The truth about him stays well hid.


The wrathful godhead that they fear

Is not the One who’s Ever-Near.


Jesus’ Way-of-Love that we can choose,

And not his blood, is the real Good News.
