The Suffering Servant - Poem by Maia Padua
(Inspired by Prophet Isaiah 53)
A noble image, He didn't look
To make us look at Him
Nothing in His appearance
To attract us to Him.
Rejected, avoided by men
A man of suffering
Accustomed to pain.
Someone, people never dare to look
Rejected, thought of Him as nothing
Yet, it is our pain He bore
Our sufferings He endured
He was being punish, we thought
As one struck by God's vengeance
He was pierced by our offenses
Crushed for our sins.
We are made whole
Like a sheep, we all had gone astray
Each following His own way;
but the Lord upon Him
The guilt of us all.
If He gives His life, an offering of sin
His descendants, in a long life, He shall see
Fulfilled through Him, the will of the Lord
The servant of God, the savior of men.
