    Who would have believed what we heard?
    Who saw the Lord's power in this?
    He grew up like a small plant before the Lord,
    like a root growing in a dry land.
    He had no special beauty or form to make us
    notice Him;
    there was nothing in His appearance to
    make us desire Him.
    He was hated and rejected by people.
    He had much pain and suffering.
    People would not even look at Him.
    He was hated, and we didn't even notice
    Him.
    But he took our suffering on Him
    and felt our pain for us. (Jesus Knows, He knows your pain)
    We saw His suffering
    and thought God was punishing Him.
    But He was wounded for the wrong we did;
    He was crushed for the evil we did.
    The punishment, which made us well, was
    given to Him,
    and we are healed because of His wounds.
    We all have wandered away like sheep;
    each of us has gone his own way.
    But the Lord has put on Him the punishment
    for all the evil we have done.

    He was beaten down and punished,
    but he didn't say a word.
    He was like a lamb being led to be killed.
    He was quiet, as a sheep is quiet while its
    wool is being cut;
    He never opened His mouth.
    Men took Him away roughly and unfairly.
    He died without children to continue His
    family.
    He was put to death;
    He was punished for the sins of my people.
    He was buried with wicked men,
    and He died with the rich.
    He had done nothing wrong,
    and He had neverlied.

    But it was the Lord who decided
    to crush Him and make Him suffer.
    The Lord made His life a penalty offering,
    but He will still see His descendants and live
    a long life.
    He will complete the things the Lord
    wants Him to do.
    After His soul suffers many things,
    He will see life and be satisfied.
    My good servant will make many people
    right with God;
    He will carry away their sins.
    For this reason I will make Him a great man
    among people,
    and He will share in all things with those
    who are strong.
    He willingly gave His life
    and was treated like a criminal.
    But He carried away the sins of many people
    and asked forgiveness for those who
    sinned.

    Just a reminder of who Jesus is, and what He did. God says He looked on all Jesus did and was satisfied. Heb.2:17
    Jesus was raised from the dead, and therefore so shall we in Him.
    All that is in this life, this world is passing away.
    All our trouble, and sorrow will be gone. Are sins are washed away, we are new creatures in Christ.
    Rejoice!
