Easter Guest Post - Caran Jantzen

The Great I Am
(Caran Jantzen, 2019)

Sacrificial Lamb, the great I Am
Stretched out across a tree
Nails driven deep
Torn flesh weeps
His blood poured out for me

Crucified Lamb, the great I Am
Lifted high for all to see
His willing choice
Their mocking voice 
Come down and we’ll believe

Slaughtered Lamb, the great I Am
His body lifted off the tree
In final breath
He conquered death
Sin’s curse has been defeated

Risen Lamb, the great I Am
Lifted high for all to see
With arms stretched wide
By Father’s side
He is waiting patiently

Almighty Lamb, the great I Am
Returning for all to see
With lightning flash
And trumpet blast
He will come victoriously

Little lamb, do you know I Am?
He alone can set you free
Free from sin’s grasp
From death at last
If only you believe
