As I was praying about putting together a video presentation of this new hymn, I began searching through the online portfolios of many different photographers. I found wonderful images of sheep and lambs, but when I asked the artists for permission to use their images in my videos, they all wanted me to sign license agreements that would give them a portion of the proceeds of the sale of the movie. I had a hard time convincing these folks that I wasn't selling anything.
I decided not to use their photos and thought about trying to illustrate the videos with my own drawings. Arthur had the brilliant optimism to suggest that we try to "take our OWN pictures of sheep". Let's have at it! I grabbed my little camera and followed him out the door. We found, amazingly, a whole flock of ewes with little lambs and one ram, literally, right around the corner at an Ohio State University Agriculture Extension. You can see the lamb photos in the video clips attached to this blog for yourself. Praise God! We had so much fun that morning, looking at those strange, vulnerable, curious, lovely creatures. We thought, with awe and wonder, "Behold The Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." John 1:29
I hope that you will become familiar with this new hymn, for the glory of The Lamb of God, our LORD and Saviour, Jesus Christ. For this reason, I have posted the music notation at our eDocs tab. It is completely FREE to anyone who will be blessed by it, will want to sing it and will tell others about it. You are free to download, copy and distribute the sheet music, but please know this - THE MUSIC IS NOT TO BE SOLD, as it belongs to The LORD and is not merchandise. God bless you, whoever you are, as you seek Him and the promise of eternal life through faith in His blood.
