Download “Behold the Lamb” Free for Easter

Yes. It’s really free.

Every Easter I like to make my song “Behold the Lamb” available both as a mp3 download and a pdf chart. Admittedly, since Easter is March 27, 2016, I’m a bit late this year.

I do this as a service to other worship leaders and for congregants.

I’ve made this song free forever to download on Soundcloud and free for now at CDBaby.

You can download the pdf chart free, too.

The Story behind Behold the Lamb:

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29

I’ve never really been especially proud of this song which is quite ironic. It was one of the first songs I wrote. Working at Calvary Chapel San Juan Capistrano at the time in Children’s Ministry, it was my habit to walk around campus praying and singing. That’s when this song was written.

Actually, it’s because of this song that I was asked to be part of the worship team for the Easter Sunday Service and I remained on the team.

Being on the worship team is what gave me the opportunity to work with Chris Falson, who produced this CD.

Mercier adores this song and I hope that you enjoy it as well.

Behold the Lamb of God
Behold the Lamb of God
Who takes away the sin of the world
Behold the Lamb of God

Jesus is the Lamb of God
Jesus is the Lamb of God
He took my sin to Calvary
Jesus is the Lamb of God

Jesus rose from the grave
Jesus rose from the grave
Behold the stone is rolled away
Jesus rose from the grave

The Lamb is on the throne
The Lamb is on the throne
One day He’ll call us all to our Home
The Lamb is on the throne

Why is Easter Important?

Easter is the celebration of the resurrection after the death (Good Friday) and burial of Jesus, the Christ.

I don’t write to the unconverted. I don’t believe anyone can be convinced.

But if you need encouragement today, please continue.

Good Friday

Good Friday (some people think He died on Thursday, but I’ll leave this to the apologetics crew) is when Jesus died in our place.

Sin has a cost. We like to focus on the love of God but seldom consider the cost of sin. Furthermore, when we do focus on the love of God we forget that it was His love that motivated Him to die.

Our Sin

The Bible teaches us that all of us have sinned.

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Whether it sounds appealing to our modern view, there is no remission of sin without the shedding of blood. In the context of the Bible, and His laws (rules) that He set up (it’s His world, after all), this cannot be bypassed or hacked.

“And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.” Hebrews 9:22

If you want to read the legal case set against us, try reading the Book of Romans. Paul does a good job laying out the case for all things “New Testament.” Suffice it, for the sake of this blog post, to say, that we are sinners, needing redemption, and only the blood of Christ (fully man yet fully God) would be acceptable.
