Like a lamb led to the slaughter Jesus never opened his mouth.
From the trial to the crucifixion and to the grave he was laid out.
After three days in the garden tomb, I can hear the angels sing
as the Lamb came forth as the Lion and the Lion became the King.
You won't find Him again at the whipping post standing there so meek;
and He won't be nailed to a rugged cross through His hands
and through His feet.
There'll never be another Calvary 'cause He don't have to prove one thing.
That day the Lamb became the Lion and the Lion became the King.
When Jesus left His splendor to live on earth with man,
by most He was rejected because He came forth as the Lamb.
Oh, but, the day is soon approaching that every eye shall see
the Lamb and the Lion of Judah has been crowned the King of Kings.
