Man of Sorrows


His appearance was so marred,
beyond human semblance.
He had no form or majesty
that we should look at him,
no beauty that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by men
a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief
and as one whom men hide their faces
he was despised, 
and we esteemed him not.
Surely he has born our griefs
and carried our sorrows
yet we esteemed him stricken
smitten by God,
and afflicted....
Yet, it was the will of the Lord
to crush him;
He put him to grief.
Is. 52:14; Is 53:2-4,10
