Brown Cross by Luigi Diamanti

You, my Lord Jesus

So Beautiful in my eyes

Yet stricken You were

Suffering and despised


In majesty You reign now

You, my King, in glory

Yet as You walked on earth

Affliction was Your story


The words of Isaiah

Echo now in my mind

God-inspired prophecy

In these pages I find


Seven-hundred years

Lord, before Your birth

God led the prophet to write

Of Your coming to earth


You grew up, Beloved

As a tender shoot

From the dry ground

You arose as a root


No beauty or majesty

To attract all to You

Suffering and rejection:

Lord, these You knew


You bore our suffering

And took up our pain

Tortured You were

That we may all gain


Crushed for our iniquities

For our transgressions, pierced

Peace we find with God

Through Your punishment fierce


The Father laid all upon You

For each one has gone astray

You bled for the sin of mankind

For each has gone his own way


Led to the slaughter You were

Like a silent lamb

Before the shearer

Stood the Great I AM


Oppression and judgment

Took You, my Lord, away

Punished for all people

That they may know the Way


It was God’s will to crush You

Your life is an offering for sin

You were cut off from the living

Yet through You Life did begin


For Your offspring do grow

God’s Will prospers in Your Hand

You are the Light of Life

You lead us to the Promised Land


The righteous Servant You are

Jesus, many You do justify

You bore the sin of multitudes

When You they did crucify


These words of prophecy

Overtake my very heart

My Lord and my God

Grant that we never part


For me You were crushed –

Jesus, how can this be?

Please accept my offering:

Lord, I give You all of me


Forever for You, Lord

I vow I shall live

Every moment, every breath

To You I humbly give

I worship You

God’s Servant and Lamb

It is my good pleasure

To give You all who I am


Through Your death

Sweet Life I find

Transformed in heart

Renewed in mind


The words of Isaiah

Echo always in my mind

God-inspired prophecy

In those pages I find


In majesty You reign now

You, my King, rule in glory

Yet You died for me

My salvation is Your story


Stricken You were for me

You suffered and were despised

My Savior, Who loves me so,

You are Beautiful in my eyes
