Reflections Luke 2: 21-24

 Only a pair of doves
The most they could afford.
No lamb was offered up
In payment for the Lord.

No lamb was offered up.
They brought the Lamb of God,
The Shepherd of the sheep,
Who came to shed his blood.

No lamb was offered up
Before the altar there;
They brought the spotless One
The Lamb beyond compare.

Come to fulfil the law
Come to die in our place
To end all sacrifice
All other lambs replace.

Only a pair of doves,
No lamb for him was given:
The perfect Lamb of God

The saviour come from heaven.
