Passover Lamb

Pass over me and mine
O spectre of death
The Lamb gave of Himself
His blood shields my life
As the scourge marked His body
So He has marked me forever
My debt is fully settled
My life dearly purchased
My soul given up to eternity
Beyond the end of days
So pass over and stay away
You serve no duty in this place
Leave us to break bread in peace
Share wine in solemn remembrance
Breathe life in our thanks
Giving all glory to Him


  1. Thank you for this poignant portrayal of Christ’s accomplishment. Somehow I missed the original posting, but it serves as a reminder of the Lord’s enduring sacrifice. By the way, “serve” works in line 12, as the verb is used in the preceding sentence. “Passover Lamb” is a great poem, as it stands.

    Thanks also for the recent “like” on Dr. J’s Apothecary Shoppe.
