Pierced by our sins,
afflicted with their pain
the Son of God dies
for our eternal gain.
Crushed and rejected,
bearer of our sickness
His stripes are a display
of grace and forgiveness.
Stricken and cut down,
all our iniquities taken
the Healer of humanity
hangs dying and forsaken.
Bruised but not broken,
Jesus lives on today . . .
but the world from Him
still turns the other way.
Pierced and afflicted,
for eternities gain
Jesus nailed to the cross
Oh, think of the pain!
King James Version
"Surely he hath borne our griefs, and
carried our sorrows:yet we did esteem
him stricken,smitten of God, and
afflicted.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. All we like sheep have gone
astray;we have turned every one to his
own way;and the Lord hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all."
