Isaiah 53 Rap

The Suffering Messiah

1 Who has believed our message, and to whom has the Lord been revealed?
He seemed such a common man, to whom has he appealed?
2 And what did attract us to him, no beauty or majesty
Nothing in his appearance, that people wanted to see.
3 A man of sorrows and suffering, men did reject and also debase
He was despise and not esteemed, like a man from whom one hid his face
4 Surely he took up our sorrows, yet we reckoned him stricken by God
Smitten by him and afflicted, our hearts were oh so hard
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, and for our sins was broken
But by his wounds we're healed, this is what Isaiah has spoken
6 Like sheep we've gone astray, each turned to his own way
But the iniquity of us all, upon Christ did God lay
7 He was oppressed and also afflicted, yet he submitted to God's will
As a sheep before her shearers, or as lamb that one does kill.
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away, and left no descendant behind
For he died unmarried and without a child, being stricken in the place of mankind.
9 He died being reckoned as wicked, and buried in a rich man's tomb
Though he had done no violence, nor was deceitful as some did assume
10 Yet it was God's will to crush, and cause him to suffer to death
To make his life a guilt-offering, just as he took his last breath
Yet he lives on and has many children, and through him God's will does thrive
11 For he came back to life again, and many sinners he does justify
12 So he has earned a great portion, because he poured out his life that day.
For he bore the sin of many, and on our behalf he did pray.
