What Wondrous Love is This

I. What wondrous love is this
O my soul O my soul
What wondrous love is this O my soul
What wondrous love is this
That caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse
For my soul for my soul
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul

II. When I was sinking down
Sinking down sinking down
When I was sinking down sinking down
When I was sinking down

In depths of sin to drown
Christ laid aside His crown
For my soul for my soul
Christ laid aside
His crown for my soul

Wait for the Lord

Wait for the Lord,
whose day is near.
Wait for the Lord:
keep watch, take heart.

Smitten, Stricken, and Afflicted

I. Stricken smitten and afflicted
See Him dying on the tree
‘Tis the Christ by man rejected
Yes my soul ‘tis He ‘tis He
‘Tis the long-expected Prophet
David’s son yet David’s Lord
By His Son God now has spoken
‘Tis the true and faithful Word

II. Tell me ye who hear Him groaning
Was there ever grief like His
Friends through fear His cause disowning
Foes insulting His distress
Many hands were raised to wound Him
None would intervene to save
But the deepest stroke that pierced Him
Was the stroke that Justice gave

III. Ye who think of sin but lightly
Nor suppose the evil great
Here may view its nature rightly
Here its guilt may estimate
Mark the sacrifice appointed
See who bears the awful load
‘Tis the Word the Lord’s Anointed
Son of Man and Son of God

IV. Here we have a firm foundation
Here the refuge of the lost
Christ the Rock of our salvation
His the name of which we boast
Lamb of God for sinners wounded
Sacrifice to cancel guilt
None shall ever be confounded
Who on Him their hope have built

What Wondrous Love is This (con’t)

III. To God and to the Lamb
I will sing I will sing
To God and to the Lamb I will sing
To God and to the Lamb
Who is the Great I Am
While millions join the theme
I will sing I will sing
While millions join the theme
I will sing

Isaiah 52:13-52:12

See, my servant will act wisely;
he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.
Just as there were many who were appalled at him—
his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being
and his form marred beyond human likeness—

so he will sprinkle many nations,
and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
and what they have not heard, they will understand.
Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He grew up before him like a tender shoot,

and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by mankind,

a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
Yet who of his generation protested?

For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was punished.
He was assigned a grave with the wicked,

and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.
Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,

and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
After he has suffered,

he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.

Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,

because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
