I call the nations now to come and see
My servant in triumphant victory!
Exalted, He shall sit at Godís right hand ó
In majesty and splendour He will stand;
For kings and rulers who refused to bow,
Without a word will kneel before Him now.
Theyíll understand what once they did not know ó
My beaten, bloodied servant, brought so low,
Disfigured by His own creationís hand,
They hardly recognised Him as a man:
Yet this same one they tried so hard to kill
Shall rise, exalted by the Fatherís will,
To cleanse the nations of their guilt and shame,
To save them by the power of His name.

ďWho has believed our message, Lord:
To whom has come your saving word?Ē
From barren soil, a tender shoot;
From Davidís line, of Jesseís root.
Forsaken He, we did not care;
In Him we saw no beauty there.
Despised, we turned our backs on Him,
Our ears too deaf, our eyes too dim
To see His form, to hear His voice;
In folly we had made our choice.
And yet it was our grief He bore
Our sorrows weighed Him down, and tore
His heart for us, His body lashed.
Now we from sin and guilt are washed.
All we, like sheep, have gone astray,
Turned every one to his own way.
Our guilt, our shame, each stain of sin,
Godís spotless lamb, was laid on Him.
A silent lamb, to slaughter led,
No protest made, no word He said.
From trial they led Him up the hill.
None understood it was Godís will
That He should bleed and die that day
His blood would wash our sins away.
They buried Him, a rich man gave
His tomb to be the Saviourís grave.
Although no wrong His hands had wrought,
No wicked words His lips had taught.
From ages past it was Godís plan
To treat Him as a guilty man.
His soul an offering for sin,
In victory to rise again;
The anguish of His soul to see,
His joy to rescue you and me!
Exalted now at Godís right hand,
Behold the Lamb! Behold the Man!
Behold, my Servant prospers now:
Before him every knee shall bow.
Exalted Jesus, here we raise
Our hearts to you in thankful praise.
