Behold the Man, song

You sat upon your mother’s lap somehow
Creator of the universe would bow
What a mystery to marvel on right now
Real hands tough from splinters of wood

You set these same hands upon children
To bless the little ones until your kingdom
A kingdom not of this world but of heaven
But still you chose to dwell among men
Behold the Lamb!

Jesus!—What have you done?
What have you done for me?

I —can’t understand why
You would die
To be my King

Sacrificial Lamb
Both God and Man
The Great I AM
My God!

That God would be a man, unbelievable
That this man could be God, unreceivable
A man to emphasize that a lamb could sympathize
When Pilate turned Him toward the crowd
“Behold the Man!”

Jesus!—What have you done?
What have you done for me?

I —can’t understand why
You would die
To be my King

Sacrificial Lamb
Both God and Man
The Great I AM
My God!

Real blood in your veins, in your sweat
Thorns you had made on your head
Your own chosen people would have you dead
Behold Your King!

Jesus!—What have you done?
What have you done for me?

I —can’t understand why
You would die
To be my King

Sacrificial Lamb
Both God and Man
The Great I AM
My God!

    Download MuseScore, and learn it.

    Set this to music, and get it to Bob Schembre at Rockport. He will know what to do.
