Why shed the blood of a lamb

that can't trample a scurrying ant
nor scare a perching fly;
that can't hurt a brooding hen
      nor startle preening chicks;
that can't raise her voice above a baa
      nor bleat in a noise-free zone;
that can't brawl with fellow lamb
      nor upset her shepherd's peace;
that can't restrict udder to her young
      nor deny fingers of a milking maid;
that can't shield her ram from harm
      nor resist a nod to slaughter table;
that gently walks to shearing shade,
      humbly yields her throat to a knife;
whose silence shouts her innocence.

Is it for food or fur?
      No, to free the wild from harm,
      stop beasts from shedding blood;
      make the world fit for humans,
      and humans fit for God.

He died for all that all May live for him;

so it will be till he comes again.

I pray that the church send the light,

and the world see beyond the cross.

Amen!
