One line of this forgiven song says, “Lamb of God, You’re my sin offering”. Jesus is the Lamb of God, my sin offering. That is why I am forgiven much.
John the Baptist called Jesus the Lamb of God in the Gospel of John. The reference appeared at John 1:29 and John 1:36.
“Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”John 1:36
In the Old Testament, lambs were sacrificed to make atonement for the sinful man. Jesus is the true sacrificial lamb who make atonement for the sins of the world. His work is perfect, his sacrifice more than enough for my forgiveness.

Jesus, You are my king, You’re my king Lamb of God, You’re my sin offering There is none who would die for my gain You alone made this selfless exchange For Your love will never fail Your love will never fail Now and evermore I say, You are my righteousness My life is in Your hands, in Your hands Now and evermore I say, I am forgiven much Your mercy knows no end, knows no end It knows no end I declare You’re my God, You’re my God You’ve removed all my fears, all my doubts At the cross, there Your will is revealed Every sickness and pain You have healed For Your love will never fail Your love will never fail Lord, I call on Your name, on Your name You’ve removed all my sins, all my shame By Your grace, in Your arms I am found Dearly loved and with goodness I’m crowned For Your love will never fail Your love will never fail
