The Substitute Sacrifice!
To a mount in Moriah my father says!
"We will make a burnt offering there, my son!"
"The wood and fire we have, but where is the sacrifice?"
"God will provide" he says!
We have arrived!
My father has built the altar and arranged the wood!
Then turns to me, binds me and lays me on the altar!
He reaches for his knife and is about to slay me
When an angel of the Lord says
"Do not harm him!"
There in the brambles is a ram!
The Lord has provided a substitute sacrifice on my behalf!
May the Lord be praised forever!
Based on Genesis 22:1-13
