The passion of Christ

Thankful Saturday: Isaiah 53:4-7

Surely Christ has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Still, we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
and He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement of our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes, we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
They oppressed, and afflicted Him,
but He opened not His mouth;
They led Him like a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
He opened not His mouth.
