He Was

Tears like rain streaming down my face
Wondering if life will ever be the same
Before all of the shame
Tears like rain streaming down my face
Remembering that He redeemed me from my disgrace
Reminded that He was wounded and pierced for my sin
So that my life would be whole again.

Isaiah 53:4-6 (Message)
But the fact is, it was our pains he carried—
our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us.
We thought he brought it on himself,
that God was punishing him for his own failures.
But it was our sins that did that to him,
that ripped and tore and crushed him—our sins!
He took the punishment, and that made us whole.
Through his bruises we get healed.
We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost.
We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way.
And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong,
on him, on him.
