IN DEFENSE OF JESUS

 

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.
