“Jesus–The Lamb of God”

Search for the word “Lamb” in the hymns found in Lutheran Service Book and you find quite a few, about 70. 70 hymns in our hymnal use the word “Lamb” in one or more verses, and more often than not, lamb refers, not to a child of God, but to Jesus.

Take for instance the hymn entitled, “The Lamb,” often sung during the season of Lent (and in the section entitled, “Redeemer,” LSB 547). The first verse alone is pregnant with meaning, and quite related to today’s Gospel:

The Lamb, the Lamb, O Father, where’s the sacrifice?

Faith sees, believes God will provide the Lamb of price!…
