Oh Little Lamb of God

Oh little lamb of God 
brought forth by a virgin of simple hands
son of the father unto all men
To and fro he walked this earth

Until his sacrificial end
coughed up by one of his own 
poor little lamb
innocently most humbly 

Yet on his last night of his life
he broke bread with twelve men
a Sacrament of his own flesh and blood
he freely offered them

God the Father sent his son,
our salvation whom bestowed
honor, blessings, mercy, 
and the greatest of love

His heart pure and earnest 
such was this little lamb
lead to his end with a heavy cross to bare, 
weary brow, and steady hands,
a love for others unending

Through humility, and peace, 
his forgiveness unfailing until the end,
crying out to his father it was now done,
lamb of mercy, lamb of peace, 
lamb of rite, lamb of eternity,

I lay my heart upon his graceful feet
and cleanse my soul with his blood and body
the Holy Sacrament, forever, and ever, 
to enter in heaven's doorway in peace, amen
