ISAIAH 53:3-6

3) 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. (4) Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him and afflicted. (5) 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. (6) We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us have turned to his own way;  and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

He was despised and rejected by men

For most they thought they didn’t have sin

A man of sorrows, familiar with suffering

The pain, He knew nothing will be buffering

Like one from whom men hide their faces

One day He will be the judge of their cases

He was despised and we esteemed Him not

To sentence Him to die was their only plot

Surely He took up our infirmities

Knowing this was not an adversity

He even carried our sorrows

Our penalty is Paid not borrowed

Yet we considered Him stricken by God

The only One that deserves to be awed

Smitten by Him and afflicted

Our sin is why He was convicted

He was pierced for our transgressions

His punishment left a lasting impression

He was crushed for our iniquities

He went to the cross obediently

The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him

He was sacrificed as the Holy Lamb

By His wounds we are healed

And with the Holy Spirit we are sealed

We all like sheep have gone astray

Each of us have turned to his own way

The Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all

From the end to the beginning called the fall
