Isaiah 53:3

A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.

Hymn: TLH 192, st. 6-8: Awake, my Heart, with Gladness Organ Audio

6. Now I will cling forever 
To Christ, my Savior true; 
My Lord will leave me never, 
Whate’er He passes through. 
He rends Death’s iron chain, 
He breaks through sin and pain, 
He shatters hell’s dark thrall,- 
I follow through it all. 

7. To halls of heavenly splendor 
With Him I penetrate; 
And trouble ne’er may hinder 
Nor make me hesitate. 
Let tempests rage at will, 
My Savior shields me still; 
He grants abiding peace 
And bids all tumult cease. 

8. He brings me to the portal 
That leads to bliss untold 
Whereon this rime immortal 
Is found in script of gold: 
“Who there My cross hath shared 
Finds here a crown prepared; 
Who there with Me has died 
Shall here be glorified.”
