Isaiah 53

Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand. After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light [of life] and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Song Lyrics – He Bears This Cross

When I was young I’d dream of things to come
I’d forge my path, and down that road I’d run
I turned my back, my world had come undone
I saw the truth and turned to face The Son
The Son, The Son

He changed my life, He made my world brand new
His light came shining through
He gave His life, He shed His blood for you
He bears this cross for you

Now He lives in me, He longs to be with you
Can it be His promises are true
Everyday, His grace keeps shining through
And step by step He helps us to renew
Our Love, Our Love

Chorus

If you believe, He’ll never leave your side
If you could see to get beyond your pride
He speaks the truth, His words will justify
And through His blood our lives are sanctified
His blood, His blood

Chorus

We step aside, we let His light shine through
We show the world the truth
He gave His life, He shed His blood for you
He Bears this cross for you
