     1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. 3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: 4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. 5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: 6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. 7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. 8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. 10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. 11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S passover. 12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. 13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. 14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.(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!
