“HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LAMB!”:  LIFE & HOPE

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ satisfied our perfect God’s requirement for paying the sin debt of imperfect humanity. That miraculous event gives us opportunity to know abundant life and hope on this planet now and experience eternal life and hope (-fufilled) in heaven forevermore.

The Easter story and its music remind me of life and hope that only God gives. They remind me to be thankful, to worship Him, and to praise the One Who is the Perfect Lamb of God.

Many songs express well the meaning of Easter and His mercy, grace, and love. “HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LAMB!” was written by Dawn Thomas, Pam Thum, & Gary McSpadden and beautifully recorded by the Talley Trio.

“HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LAMB!”:

“From the moment man first disobeyed the Father,
We were then held captive by our sin.
The law of God demanded a sacrifice
Restoring to Himself His own again.

So the Lamb, His only Son, was freely offered
Atonement for our sins forever made.
The Innocent and Holy — still God and God only —
Would ransom and redeem us back again.

Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!
Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!
My heart sings His praise again!
Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!

So to the cross they carried Him
With all our guilt and all our sin.
The Lamb of God was slain for our transgressions,
And on the cross those nail-pierced hands
Reached up to God and down to man.
And just as if I’d never sinned,
He took me in his arms
Embracing me He willingly forgave.

For mercy, grace, and love that know no bounds,
Though guilty and condemned I now am free.
Forever I’m forgiven for Christ the Lord is risen,
And risen with Him we shall one day be.

Oh, Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!
Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!
My heart sings His Praise again!
Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!

Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!
Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!
My heart sings His Praise again!
Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!

Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!
My heart sings His praise again!
Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb!
Praise the Lamb!”
(Thomas, Thum, McSpadden)

May you know the Risen Christ of Easter, worship Him in Spirit and Truth, and join me in saying (or singing), “HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LAMB.”

“The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world!”  (John 1: 29)

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (1 Peter: 3)
