God Will Provide the Lamb

Nothing explains how the Scarlet Thread runs through Genesis chapter 22 better than the old Michael Card song, “God Will Provide A Lamb.”

Three day’s journey to the sacred place
A boy and a man with a sorrowful face
Tortured, yet faithful to God’s command
To take the life of his son
With his own hands

Chorus:
God will provide a lamb
To be offered up in your place
A sacrifice so spotless and clean
To take all your sin away

There’s wood and fire
Where’s the sacrifice
The questioning voice
And the innocent eyes
Is the son of laughter who you’ve waited for
To die like a lamb 
To please the LORD

Chorus

A gleaming knife
An accepted choice
A rush of wind
And an angel’s voice
A ram in the thicket
Caught by his horns
And a new age of trusting the Lord is born

Chorus

God has provided a lamb
He was offered up in your place
What Abraham was asked to do, he’s done
He’s offered his only son

What Abraham was asked to do, he’s done
He’s offered his only son
