Good Friday

He was Dispensed and Rejected by Others
A man of Suffering, and familiar with Pain
Like one from whom People hide their Faces
He was Despised and we held him in low Esteem
Surely he took up our Pain and Bore our Suffering
Yet we consider him Punished by God
Stricken by him and Afflicted

But he was Pierced for our Transgressions
He was Crushed for our Iniquities, the Punishment
That brought us Peace was on Him
And by his Wounds we are Healed
We all like Sheep have gone Astray
Each of us has Turned to our own Way
And the Lord has Laid on him the Iniquity of us All

ISAIAH 53-1-6
