More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Notes

Scripture References:

st. 2 = Isa. 53:3-6, John 1:29
st. 3 = 2 Cor. 5:14, 17

Timothy Dudley-Smith (PHH 233) wrote this text during August 1972 at his seaside summer home in Ruan Minor, Cornwall, England. The text was first published in the British collection Psalm Praise (1973) as a psalm for Passion Week.

This strong text of testimony and encouragement points all sinners to Christ, the Lamb of God. It also encourages believers to continue the journey that will ultimately bring them to the throne of the Lamb in glory. The repeated phrase "Lamb of God" is John the Baptist's description of Christ as the fulfillment of the Old Testament Passover (John 1:29).

Liturgical Use:
Lent; Holy Week; Easter; worship services of confession/forgiveness as well as other times in which we reflect on Christ's redemptive work.
