Today, I’m simply sharing this hymn. It is based on Isaiah 53. I recognize that we all have different tastes in music, so you may not prefer the music. I didn’t have a lot of choices. If you don’t like it, just enjoy the words. Remember what Jesus willingly put Himself through for you…so that you would be able to have a relationship.
He didn’t do it so you would always feel guilty and indebted to Him. He did it without those negative, manipulative attitudes. He did it out of love and the desire for relationship…with you!
He Was Wounded For Our Transgressions
He was wounded for our transgressions,
He bore our sins in His body on the tree;
For our guilt He gave us peace,
From our bondage gave release,
And with His stripes, and with His stripes,
And with His stripes our souls are healed.
He was numbered among transgressors,
We did esteem Him forsaken by His God;
As our sacrifice He died,
That the law be satisfied,
And all our sin, and all our sin,
And all our sin was laid on Him.
We had wandered, we all had wandered
Far from the fold of “the Shepherd of the sheep”;
But He sought us where we were,
On the mountains bleak and bare,
And bro’t us home, and bro’t us home,
And bro’t us safely home to God.
Who can number His generation?
Who shall declare all the triumphs of His Cross?
Millions, dead, now live again,
Myriads follow in His train!
Victorious Lord, victorious Lord,
Victorious Lord and coming King!
