Violently they grabbed His arms as they tightly strapped each wrist
with the hellish looks that a strong armed soldier whip clenched in his fist
Laced with chips of bone they beat Him hard from His shoulders to His feet
and it sliced right through His olive skin just like razors through a sheet
countless times the blood splattered as each inhuman lash was given
Several times His knees gave way as His flesh just hung like ribbons
Then suprisingly He turned His head though the words He used were few
The soldier's face turned pale when He said, "This blood is for you."
Uncaringly they tossed a garment across His weakened form
and His blood pressure fell deathly low as the crowds began to swarm
they forced Him to carry His cross uphill as His face they punched and smacked
as the splinters from the crisscross beam dug deep into His back
Through lack of sleep and dehydration His tongue began to swell
and weakened by His loss of blodd, this Prophet, Teacher fell
When He did some blood splattered on a man named Simon's shoe
And as He bent to wipe it off, the Prophet said, "Simon this blood is for you."
Then they pounded a spike through the bones in His wrist, bursting arteries and veins
As they dropped the cross in the hole they dug, His body convulsed with pain
Through an agony and torment that never a soul shall find
He tilts His face towards heaven with full control of His mind
With more love than any human heard before that time or since
He made a statement that to this day makes the strongest skeptic wince
He cried, "Father God forgive them for they know not what they do."
And as He gave His life for those lost in sin, He was saying, "This blood is for you."
And this blood can save the soul, heal the sick, mend the heart
This blood can give you access to the very throne of God
It still can go the distance through the pain to where you are
THIS BLOOD IS FOR YOU...THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB
