God Did Provide Himself a Lamb (Oaks)
God did provide himself a Lamb,
To sacrifice and pay sin’s price.
For him there was no waiting ram
In thicket by, nor angel nigh
To spare the Son he sent to die.
For Christ was destined to atone,
And so he came our souls to claim.
He trod the grapes of wrath alone
For one and all, the great and small,
To save them freely from the Fall.
Then what of pains that come my way
As passing years bring trials and tears?
They are but shadows born of clay
That fade and flee, and I shall see
Their happy harvest come to me.
Shall I sit down with Abraham
Who met the test of God’s behest
To offer his most precious lamb,
If I withhold, should I be told
To sacrifice of my own fold?
