Luke Morton – The Lamb has Overcome

One of the more popular songs from our continuing compilation series has been an original piece written by Luke Morton for our Songs for the Supper compilation. The Lamb has Overcome is a meditation on the risen victorious Lamb, a festal triumph for the future wedding feast – an ode for the Easter season.

VERSE
The Lamb has overcome
The Lamb has overcome
The battleʼs done and the victory is won
For the Lamb has overcome

No grave could hold him down
No grave could hold him down
Up from the ground, “He is risen!” was the sound
No grave could hold him down

At Godʼs right hand is he
At Godʼs right hand is he
Our Perfect Plea as he lives to intercede
At Godʼs right hand is he

CHORUS
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Glory be unto his name (2x)

The table now is spread
The table now is spread
This wine and bread
Broken body and blood shed
The table now is spread

The day is drawing near
The day is drawing near
He shall appear and will wipe away each tear
The day is drawing near

The Lamb has overcome
The Lamb has overcome
The battleʼs done and the victory is won
For the Lamb has overcome

(c) Luke Morton, 2011
