Who has believed what he has heard,
With the arm of the Lord revealed;
See with your eyes within the Word,
That God has opened and unsealed.
For He grew up like a young plant,
Like a root out of the dry ground;
He had no form and did not slant,
Or majesty could not be found.
No beauty should we desire,
But was despised and rejected;
No esteem for to acquire,
A man of sorrows neglected.
Surely, He has borne our griefs,
As He carried our sorrows;
And many had such disbeliefs,
Stricken for our tomorrows.
But He was pierce for our sin,
Crushed for our iniquities;
For all the transgressions within,
That were from illegalities.
He was chastised that had brought peace,
And with His wounds that we are healed;
Loving forgiveness not to cease,
On a path with abundant yield.
We are like sheep have gone astray,
Having immoral lifestyles;
Everyone turned their own way,
Casual joy that defiles.
He was oppressed and afflicted,
Like a lamb led to the slaughter;
On a cross He was evicted,
When pierced flowed out blood and water.
By judgment and taken away,
Cutting Him off from the living;
Even though they did disobey,
He still called for in forgiving.
But they had laid Him in a grave,
After His death with a rich man;
No violence and not a slave,
It was how God set up His plan.
