Who will come to hear the story
one that God has painted true?
With no part about Him special
why should we keep Him in view?
Some before us did mistreat Him,
jeered and scorned the One who saves;
He became a man of sorrows,
Every grief in life He braved.
Though we failed to love His presence,
yet He bears our burdens whole.
We saw death, and thought, “He earned it,”
didn’t see He saved our souls.
He took the beating meant for us –
because of sin, the Son was killed.
He laid His life down for our peace,
and by His wounds, we are healed.
So all of us, who’ve turned away,
had our wrongs and burdens laid
silently, upon His shoulders,
He, our Lamb, atonement made.
He was treated by His people
like a robber or a thief.
He did no wrong during His years
yet the Lord put him to grief.
Now we see what our transgressions
bear as fruit: the death of Him.
We’ve become now seen as righteous,
He intercedes for us, praise Him!
