We Have A Lamb began life as a meditation on Revelation 7:17. It then became a poem which was picked up by The Gospel Coalition.

Phil Moore saw it and put a fantastic tune to it. Then David Gibson arranged it for strings and singers, and we got to work recruiting musicians and singers. Finally, Kezia Hulse added some charming animations, and Max Paterson made the video. This is the result.

Feel free to use this in your Sunday services/streams (CCLI number: 7154491). We encourage churches to download the video file and cut it into your Sunday streams and we encourage every Christian to share it among friends on social media.

LYRICS

For mistakes we can’t forget
and the sins that still beset…
We have a Lamb.

For our fraught and anxious realm,
for the fears that overwhelm…
We have a throne.

We sing worthy, worthy is the Lamb
Who was slain for the world —
Royal arms unfurled.
We sing glory, glory to the Christ:
Your cross — our Fountain of Life.

For our lost and lonely hearts,
for our gnarled and tangled paths…
We have a Shepherd.

For our dry and listless souls
and our thirst for being whole…
We have a Stream.

We sing worthy, worthy is the Lamb
Who was slain for the world —
Royal arms unfurled.
We sing glory, glory to the Christ:
Your cross — our Fountain of Life.

For regret and ravaged years,
for all sweet and bitter tears…
We have a Father.

For our treks through burning sands,
To our home in promised lands,
This hope till all is done:
Our God the three-in-one.

We sing worthy, worthy is the Lamb
Who was slain for the world —
Royal arms unfurled.
We sing glory, glory to the Christ:
Your cross — our Fountain of Life.
