403. Lent 1 (Series B)
God, who once Abraham desired
To offer up his son,
Relented; of Himself required
His own Begotten One.
(Refrain:) "Upon the mountain of the Lord,
God will Himself the Lamb afford."
When Jesus in the Jordan bathed,
Embarking on His way,
He rose up in repentance swathed,
Our penalty to pay. (Refrain)
The heavens opened: as a dove
The Spirit hove in view.
The Father's voice spoke from above:
"Son, I AM pleased with You." (Refrain)
For forty days He kept the fast,
By desert creatures trailed.
He faced the tempter's test and passed;
Where Adam fell, prevailed. (Refrain)
Of time fulfilled, of kingdom come
He preached in Galilee,
For Israël and heathendom
The Lamb prepared to be. (Refrain)
Repent then, you who know your worth,
Who know your sin and grieve!
Christ Jesus has redeemed the earth;
The glad, good news believe! (Refrain)
