To bruise Him ...

Yet it was the will
Of Jehovah that this Man
Should endure bruising.

What did God see?

For God saw a Man

With neither of Satan's traits,

Violence and guile.

Faithful and true

As God had ordained
He who was faithful and true
Had a rich man's tomb.

Scoundrels, criminals
Tipped in one pit: they would have
Put my Saviour there.

By malice and cruelty
But for "my people".

He who had seen Jah

He who had seen Jah
In the land of the living:
Severed from the thrum.

Messias cut off

Messias cut off:
But an empty tomb declares
His generation.

And from judgment

Thoughts of judgment swelled
In minds of those who took Him
Away from justice.
