Behold

Behold

by Joseph L. Smith

Behold the man!

These are the words

That Pilate calmly said

As soldiers placed a crown of thorns

Upon the Savior’s head.

No fault they found in Him.

Behold the Lamb!

God’s chosen Lamb

Who came to set us free.

He bore our sins upon the cross.

He died for you and me.

My name is written on His hands,

My sins, upon His soul.

He suffered all the pangs of death

To make the wounded whole.

Behold the King!

His throne, a tree

Outlined against the sky,

As all creation quakes in fear

And angels wonder why.

But, then in might and majesty,

He robs death of it’s sting.

He takes his throne in Heav’n on high,

The Lord of everything!
