Songs From Leviticus: One Holy Lamb
Each week, we will go through the books of the Bible, looking at a song that illustrates a passage from each book.
Leviticus 16 tells the story of the Day of Atonement. Many Southern Gospel songs have told the story of the lamb and its parallels to the Lamb of God, but perhaps none better than Poet Voices’ “One Holy Lamb”:
Atonement day, a shepherd cries;
Another spotless lamb must die.
Oh, how could just one sacrifice,
Our God, Jehovah, satisfy?
One Holy Lamb washed my sin away;
One sacrifice paid a price I could not pay;
One Holy Lamb, one great I AM, one seed of Abraham,
One Holy Lamb washed my sin away!
