God Will Provide a Lamb; and a cantata finally finished
Since I was old enough to read, I have been particularly affected by the story of Abraham when he was commanded to sacrifice his son, Isaac. I remember sitting on my mother’s bed with an old, old, old red-letter edition of the Bible, reading the story and looking at the full-page color plate that faced the scriptural page. (The picture was much less gentle than this one!)
It wasn’t until much later that I recognized the event for what it was: a real-life “parable” about the sacrifice that Jesus Christ would make for them, and that He has made for me.
This song describes that real-life “parable.”
Here’s Heather Prusse singing the track, beautifully as usual:

The song is available in both SATB, and low- to medium-voice solo.
