Hallelujah, What A Savior

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, 
and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; 
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: 
yet we did esteem him stricken, 
smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, 
he was bruised for our iniquities: 
the chastisement of our peace was upon him; 
and with his stripes we are healed.
- Isaiah 53:3 - 5 -

“Man of Sorrows!” what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
“Full atonement!” can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in Heav’n exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew His song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
- Philip P. Bliss -

Who hath believed our report? 
and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?

For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, 
and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; 
and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, 
and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; 
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: 
yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, 
he was bruised for our iniquities: 
the chastisement of our peace was upon him; 
and with his stripes we are healed.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; 
he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, 
he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, 
and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.

He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: 
by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; 
for he shall bear their iniquities.

Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, 
and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; 
because he hath poured out his soul unto death: 
and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, 
and made intercession for the transgressors.
- Isaiah 53 -

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, 
that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: 
by whose stripes ye were healed.
- 1 Peter 2:24 -

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, 
the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, 
being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.
1 Peter 3:18 -

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, 
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 
but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; 
but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: 
but he that believeth not is condemned already, 
because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
- John 3:16 - 18 -

It is said that the word Hallelujah
is basically the same in all languages.
It seems as though God has given this word as a preparation
for the great celebration of heaven,
when His children from every tribe, language, people, and nation
shall have been gathered home to sing their eternal "Hallelujah to the Lamb!"
- Kenneth W. Osbeck -

Have a blessed Sunday, lovely friends!
Hugs and joy to you.

What a wonderful hymn and fitting scripture choices!
I read Psalm 119 this morning, but when I was deciding where to read I almost turned to Isaiah 53. It is a special scripture for me. I have all but the last verse committed to memory. This morning I thought about working on the last verse in Isaiah 53. Now that I have been encouraged by this post I think I will go ahead and finish memorizing Isaiah 53 while the house is still quite. :)
Thank you!

Thanks for this post! My favorite choir arrangement by John W. Peterson uses the verses from Isaiah 53. I wish I had a copy of that music. "He Was Wounded for Our Transgressions"

Have a blessed day this Palm Sunday!

Blessings to you on this Palm Sunday! I can hardly believe Easter is only a week away! Wasn't it just Christmas?

Your post is so lovely with the images from the hymns. I remember as a little girl, when we used to pull out those precious hymnals and turn to page.... Now, everyone uses screens to display the songs, which is fine, but I loved holding that beautiful book with all of those amazing songs and sharing it with whoever I stood next to that Sunday.

Thank you for sharing all of those beautiful scriptures from God's Word!

God bless!!! Net
