Our Hands on the Head of the Lamb by Raymond A. Foss

Oh I thank God,
for this little bit of grace
that in the Garden,
we didn’t place our hands
on the head of the lamb
(at least not directly)

Christ taking on my sin
drinking the blood of my shame
the bitter cup of the suffering
the cross, death in my name

That I may live
have new life
offering me a path
restored, made whole
repenting, believing,
returning back to God

“When you think of Jesus' agony in the Garden of Gethsemane –
Matthew says he was overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death –
and that he threw himself on the ground as he began to pray –
how has this passage brought help or comfort to you?”
Matthew 26:17-30;
Mark 14:12-25;
Luke 22:7-20.
Luke 22:39-46
Matthew 26:35-45
Matthew 26:39
“And he went a little further, and fell on his face,
and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible,
let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will,
but as thou wilt”. (KJV)
