Hallelujah, Praise the Lamb

From the moment man first disobeyed the Father,
We were then held captive by our sins.
The Law of God demanded a sacrifice
Restoring to Himself His own again.

So the Lamb, His only Son was freely offered,
Atonement for our sins forever made.
He, innocent and holy, still God and God only
Could ransom and redeem us back again.

Hallelujah, praise the Lamb
Hallelujah, praise the Lamb
My heart sings HIS praise again,
Hallelujah, praise the Lamb

So to the cross they carried Him
With all our guilt and all our sin,
The Lamb of God was slain for our transgressions.

And on the cross, those nail-pierced hands
Reached up to God and down to man.
And just as if I'd never sinned, He took me in His arms
Embracing me, He willingly forgave!

For mercy, grace, and love that knows no bounds.
Though guilty and condemned, I now am clean!
Forever I'm forgiven, for CHRIST the Lord is risen
And risen with Him we shall one day be!!

Oh, hallelujah, praise the Lamb!
Hallelujah, praise the Lamb!
My heart sings His praise again,
Hallelujah, praise the Lamb!!!


  1. Amy,

    This was a very beautiful poem.

  2. This is one of my favorite songs. I had the privilege to share it Sunday morning with our church. It amazes and humbles me what the Lord has done, we deserve eternal punishment but God grants us another Way.

    The Talleys first sang it, I believe.

  3. Hello my sweet sister!

    I've have a little gift for you over at my place. I pray it will bless you day!


  4. I hope you don't mind but I've tagged you over at my blog.
