The sacrificial lamb was laid upon

The altar by the hands of wicked men,

And all was dark the days before the dawn

In the apparent victory of sin.

The lesser lion, seeking to devour,

Set his assault against the sacred son,

And Satan, in the darkness of the hour,

Was certain that the victory was won.

And so it was, but not for his array.

The cross of Christ displayed for all to see

That Satan’s claim to power had been wrong.

The finished hunter had become the prey.

The word made flesh fulfilled the prophecy.

The lamb had been a lion all along.
