The Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Scripture: Isaiah 53:6-9

ESV Text: Isaiah 53:6-9


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 53
6 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. 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.(KJV)

3. “Yea, Father, yea, most willingly 
I’ll bear what Thou commandest; 
My will conforms to Thy decree, 
I do what Thou demandest.” 
O wondrous Love, what hast Thou done! 
The Father offers up His Son! 
The Son, content, descendeth! 
O Love, how strong Thou art to save! 
Thou beddest Him within the grave 
Whose word the mountains rendeth. 

4. From morn till eve my theme shall be 
Thy mercy’s wondrous measure; 
To sacrifice myself for Thee 
Shall be my aim and pleasure. 
My stream of life shall ever be 
A current flowing ceaselessly, 
Thy constant praise outpouring. 
I’ll treasure in my memory, 
O Lord, all Thou hast done for me, 
Thy gracious love adoring.
