The Lyrics

This was originally for a Bible 9 assignment, but since I thought it was kind of cool, I decided to submit it.
I am just a goat, oh, Mr. High Priest-O
I am just a goat, oh, Mr. High Priest-O
I'm Israel's scapegoat
I am just a goat, oh, Mr. High Priest-O
On this Day of Atonement

You're wondering who I am
I'm like the Son of Man
Slave to High Priest Aaron
I'm slaughtered by his hand

I've got some blood that
I have running
Under my skin
Aaron will put
On his linen
To sacrifice again
I am the goat whose
Sins you've taken
Listen to what you're told
I'm just a goat whose
Circumstances
Were beyond my control
The Lord needs control
The Lord wants control
I want control
But the Lord controls

I am the scapegoat
Aaron laid his
Cold hands on me
He came to kill me
So the Lord's people,
so they could be free.
I'm not the Hero
I'm not the Savior
The Lord saved your lives
I'm just the one who
Had to suffer
So you could survive
So you could survive
But I won't survive
You can survive
The Lord saved your lives.

My companion is dead.
With hands laid on his head.
The High Priest will send me
Into the desert heat.

I am just a goat, oh, Mr. High Priest-O
Oh no! (Oh no!)
Oh no! (Oh no!)

Please don't sacrifice me, Mr. High Priest-O
Oh no! (Oh no!)
Oh no! (Oh no!)

I am just a goat, oh, Mr. High Priest-O
I am just a goat, oh, Mr. High Priest-O
I am just a goat, oh, Mr. High Priest-O
I am just a goat, oh, Mr. High Priest-O

Thank you very much, oh, Mr. High Priest-O
For doing the job
No one else could do
And thank you very much, oh, Mr. High Priest-O
For saving all the people from the wrath of The Lord
Thank you.
Thank you, thank you.
I wanna thank you.
Please! Thank you!
Oh, oh oh.
Yah.

The problems' plain to see.
There's too much sinning.
Scapegoats to save our lives.
But Jesus will provide.

The time has come, right now
To lay your burden down.
Now everyone will see
The Son's identity
It's Jesus!
Jesus!
Jesus!
Jesus!
Jesus!
