By His Stripes
by Deborah Ann Belka
9/23/2012 / Poetry
If He abased and humbled Himself,
they why don't we hold Him in esteem?
If He was obedient even unto the cross,
they why won't His salvation we redeem?
If He bore His own grief and sorrow,
then why don't we think He'll take ours?
If He took upon Himself our punishment
then why don't we see the scars?
If He was wounded for our transgressions,
then why do we still pursue after sin?
If He was bruised for our iniquities,
then why does immorality still win?
If His chastisement became our peace,
then why do we still have so much conflict?
If by His stripes, we have been healed,
then why do we on others ~ pain inflict?
If He was oppressed and treated unfairly,
then why do we still treat Him this way?
It must be true what the Bible tells us,
all of His sheep . . . have gone astray!
King James Version
"But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities: the
chastisement of our peace was upon him; and
with his stripes we are healed."
