25. Isaiah 53 song

It was our weaknesses, our sicknesses

That weighed You down

Our diseases, our sorrows

That You bore to Your grave

It was our sins that kept You

Nailed to the cross

So we could die with You on that day

.

You grew up so tender

Like a fresh green shoot

In the dry ground of humanity

You were loving and kind

But we esteemed You not

Did not value Your loving simplicity

.

You were arrested and tried

And we turned our backs to hide

From Your innocent face

To reject Your love and grace

For in our sin we could not bear

Having Your righteousness so near

.

But it was our rebellion, Jesus

That caused You to be pierced

It was our hard sinful hearts

That crushed the life from You

You were whipped for our healing

And beaten so we could be made whole.

.

All of us like wayward sheep

Had wandered far from God

We’d turned our backs on living His way

But Jesus You took our place

On the cross that day

Silently, lovingly bore our sins away

.

Like an executed criminal

You were put in a grave

That a rich man had given

For You on that day

And we thought all was lost

All hope had gone away

.

But the grave could not hold

A sinless One like You

Death could not contain

Your powerful, loving reign

So You rose to life again

To free us from our sins’ chains

.

It was our weaknesses, our sicknesses

That weighed You down

Our diseases, our sorrows

That You bore to Your grave

It was our sins that kept You

Nailed to the cross

But we rose with You on that resurrection day

We rose to new life with You on that resurrection day!

.

Now we live in the fullness

Of Your resurrection life

Your holiness, Your lovingness

Our new empowering might

For Your indwelling powerful Spirit

Gives us Your Your eternal life
