Behind the Songs: Behold

Song stories & lyrics from the album Fire in the Night: Behold


As a worship leader, my favorite thing to do is to point people directly to Jesus, to worship Him in spirit and in truth, and to behold him … to look upon him in all his glory and majesty. A friend and I both had the desire (at the same time!) to write a song about “beholding the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” We got together, shared our thoughts, she shared her song idea, I shared mine, and our producer built an amazing arrangement around “Behold,” making it one of the highest places of worship on the album.

Behold

Behold the Lamb
Behold the Lamb
Behold the Lamb
Who takes away the sins
Who takes away the sins
The sins of the world

You are holy
You are righteous
Awesome in power

You are worthy
You are righteous
Lamb Who was slain

And we behold YOU
We behold YOU
We behold YOU
We behold the Lamb

We behold the Lamb
We behold the Lamb
Who takes away the sins
Who takes away the sins
The sins of the world
