But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
“Pierced for our transgressions"
The Passion of the Christ in Isaiah 53
Have a sacred and Holy Holiday weekend.
The following hymn not only describes what Christ suffered but expresses so well my gratitude and love for Him.
O sacred Head, now wounded, with grief and shame weighed down, now scornfully surrounded with thorns, Thine only crown: how pale Thou art with anguish, with sore abuse and scorn! How does that visage languish which once was bright as morn! What Thou, my Lord, has suffered was all for sinners' gain; mine, mine was the transgression, but Thine the deadly pain. Lo, here I fall, my Savior! 'Tis I deserve Thy place; look on me with Thy favor, vouchsafe to me Thy grace. What language shall I borrow to thank Thee, dearest Friend, for this Thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end? O make me Thine forever; and should I fainting be, Lord, let me never, never
outlive my love for Thee.
As seen on Mennonite Girls can cook the verse.
We should not forget to entertain strangers, lest we entertain angels unaware.
