Christ Our Passover
(To the tune of The Church’s One Foundation)
Called through the flaming glory to set God’s people free,
The keeping of God’s promise, for all the world to see,
The prophet warned of judgment against the hardened land,
That held God’s people captive, against His strong command.
The angel of God’s vengeance passed all throughout the land.
Yet for his humbled people, he stayed his wrathful hand,
A lamb would be salvation, its blood a covering;
It served to shield the faithful, its life an offering.
In time God’s loving kindness in fullness was revealed.
By blood his wrath averted, the covenant was sealed –
God gave the perfect off’ring in his eternal Son;
Sin, guilt, and death defeated, salvation fully won!
