Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high. As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider. (Isaiah 52:13-15)

|(midi) (mp3)||More Marred Than Any Man’s|
More marred than any man’s
The Savior’s visage see;
Was ever sorrow like to His,
Endured on Calvary!
Oh, hear that piercing cry!
What can its meaning be?
My God! My God! Oh, why hast Thou,
My God, forsaken Me?
Oh ’twas because our sins
On Him by God were laid;
He who Himself had never sinned,
For sinners, sin was made.
Thus sin He put away
By His one sacrifice.
Then, Conqueror o’er death and hell,
He mounted to the skies.
Therefore let all men know
That God is satisfied;
And sinners all who Jesus trust,
Through Him are justified.
