     1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. 2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. 3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. 4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. 5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? 6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do. 7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little. 8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him, 9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? 10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. 12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. 13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten. 14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

     15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.(KJV)

1. Behold the Lamb of God! 
0 Thou for sinners slain, 
Let it not be in vain 
That Thou hast died! 
Thee for my Savior let me take, 
My only refuge let me make 
Thy pierced side. 

2. Behold the Lamb of God! 
Into the sacred flood 
Of Thy most precious blood 
My soul I cast. 
Wash me and make me pure and clean, 
Uphold me through life’s changeful scene, 
Till all be past. 

3. Behold the Lamb of God! 
All hail, incarnate Word! 
Thou everlasting Lord, 
Purge out our leaven; 
Clothe us with godliness and good, 
Feed us with Thy celestial food, 
Manna from heaven. 

4. Behold the Lamb of God! 
Worthy is He alone 
To sit upon the throne 
Of God above, 
One with the Ancient of all days, 
One with the Paraclete in praise, 
All Light, all Love!
