The Theme Of My Song

About Behold the Lamb of God

“…I wrote these songs because as a young man I was captivated by the vast and wondrous story the Bible tells us of Christ’s centrality to the universe itself.

Colossians 1 tells us, “…by him all things were created, in heaven and earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”

That’s it. That’s what I want you to know if you didn’t already know, and what I want you to remember if you forgot.

It’s what I hope we’re all celebrating as the last notes of this album fade away.

He’s our king, and he loves us. … What I want to want is for Christ to be glorified, to use whatever time is left to herald the coming of his Kingdom, world without end. Because of the Gospel, an awareness of sin leads to gratitude, and gratitude is the doorway to joy. He made peace, by the blood of his cross. …

So it is with great joy that I sit here marveling at the Lord’s great kindness … for speaking the world into being, for spinning it like a vinyl on a turntable, for setting down the needle that amplifies the symphony he’s conducting, and inviting us to join in the song of Christ’s courage, selflessness, compassion, and kingship.

It is the theme of my song, and by his grace, will be for all eternity” – Andrew Peterson
