Poem - The Substitute Lamb

A shepherd carefully scans his flock
The sheep look content under his gaze
But then he spots a lamb hidden by a rock
Abandoned, hungry, and too young to graze

Mothers recognize their young by smell
So they won’t adopt orphaned sheep
The shepherd knows this all too well
So this keeps him from his sleep

Only one way this lamb will survive
That’s if another lamb should die
The dead lamb’s fleece then will give
The orphaned sheep a way to live

Isn’t this what Jesus had to do for you and me
When He hung upon that awful tree?
His blood covers all our sin
Making us acceptable to God in Him

By Christina Morley

    1. Thanks Michelle! That's very sweet of you! I'm posting a new poem sometime today. The rain is pouring down in sheets and the wind is blowing furiously over here in the Western Cape, South Africa. My 14-year-old son is supposed to play rugby at his high school in this weather. Oh my! Wishing you a great weekend too!
