The Sacrifice


“The Sacrifice” is a very short and simple song with a very powerful message- Jesus has done everything for you, will you not give Him all? The appeal God makes to our hearts is not one of forced compliance to His will. Rather, God lavishes His love on us in such a profound way that it would seem impossible not to respond. What should we do having been given such great love? Jesus held nothing back for us, loves us completely, and proved it at the cross. As Paul says, “The love of Christ compels us…”

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.” -2 Corinthians 5:14-15



The Sacrifice- Lyrics

by: Mike Helms

The holy Lamb of God
God’s precious sacrifice,
the One who died for you-
the Lord of Life

He’s faithful and He’s true
His heart is set on you,
the Holy Lamb of God
the sacrifice…

His body nailed on a tree for you
there’s nothing He held back or wouldn’t do,
He gave all He could give-
and all He asks is that for Him you live

Be faithful and be true
to Him who died for you,
the Holy Lamb of God
the sacrifice

the Holy Lamb of God
the sacrifice.
