 The Humiliation and exaltation of Christ.
Isa.
53:1-5,10-12.
Who has believed thy word, Or thy salvation known? Reveal thine arm, Almighty Lord, And glorify thy Son.
The Jews esteemed him here Too mean for their belief; Sorrows his chief acquaintance were, And his companion, grief.
They turned their eyes away, And treated him with scorn; But 'twas their grief upon him lay, Their sorrows he has borne.
'Twas for the stubborn Jews, And Gentiles then unknown, The God of justice pleased to bruise His best-beloved Son.
"But I'll prolong his days, And make his kingdom stand; My pleasure," saith the God of grace, "Shall prosper in his hand.
" ["His joyful soul shall see The purchase of his pain And by his knowledge justify The guilty sons of men.
] ["Ten thousand captive slaves, Released from death and sin, Shall quit their prisons and their graves And own his power divine.
] ["Heav'n shall advance my Son To joys that earth denied; Who saw the follies men had done, And bore their sins, and died.
