Suffering Servant

Tomorrow at City on a Hill we are looking at the bloody murder of Jesus Christ. We wanted to share a song with you that is going to be played at tomorrows service as it very much relates to our sermon content. We have provided link below if you are interested in purchasing this song through iTunes.

The Suffering Servant by Dustin Kensrue

“His appearance

was so badly marred he could not

have been recognized.

So disfigured

so beyond all human likeness

that we hid our eyes.

Though he carried

all our griefs and bore our sorrows

We esteemed him not.

But despised him

and considered him afflicted

and as one reviled by God.

 

Though al of us have gone astray

though all have turned to their own ways

the Lord has laid our wickedness on Him.

His punishment has brought us peace

and crushed for our iniquities

he died to save his people from their sin.

 

He was stricken

and though pierced for our transgressions

he did not lash out.

But was silent

like  a lamb led to the slaughter

so he opened not his mouth.

 

Though all of us have gone astray

though all have turned to their own ways

the Lord has laid our wickedness on him,

His punishment has brought us peace

and crushed for our iniquities

he died to save his people from their sin.

 

The might of Yahweh stands revealed

And by his wound we are all healed.

 

He offered up his soul to death

he poured it out till none was left

he died but now shall rise and surely see

the many he has righteous made

and satisfied his works have made

this man of sorrows evermore shall be

on high exalted lifted up

the righteous servant raised above

his mighty hand shall work the will of God.

The nations shall all hear an see

astonished at his victory

the kings of men shall shut their mouths in awe.
