The Lamb of God (2016-2017 WLA Theme Song)

Every year I write a theme song for Winnebago Lutheran Academy students and the students of the WLA Association grade schools which is based on the theme passage of the school year.  This year the theme passage is John 1:29 “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!" (NIV).

This song tries to teach a couple of key concepts about this passage: (1) God demands blood to pay for sins, as he did throughout the Old Testament, requiring sacrifices from his chosen nation, Israel, for their sins; (2) John the Baptist knew that Jesus was the last sacrifice that God demanded to pay for the world's sins and he pointed everyone to the sinless Lamb of God, the perfect, atoning sacrifice; (3) Everyone in the world still sins every day and we desperately need Jesus' perfect sacrifice of himself to pay for our sins.

Sheet music can be downloaded from Google Drive.
