about

For the majority, the book of Isaiah puts forward a stark picture of humanities condition and deserving judgement. But there's a glimmer of hope as the suffering servant comes shining through.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. - Isaiah 43:19

This song was written for a series talks at Hunter Bible Church on the Suffering Servant of Isaiah.

lyrics

Verse 1
A dark and crooked wasteland
A sea of guilt and shame
Mountains high with endless pride
We walk our foolish ways
A distant light has broken in
The blind begin to see
A holy God has become flesh
Oppressed to set us free

Chorus
Surely, God has saved our souls
O our great redeemer
Surely, love and justice flowed
O our suff'ring saviour
Praise the one who bore our sin
Praise the one who brought us life again

Verse 2
Burdens bowed his holy head
My thorns have crowned the king
Carrying that cursed cross
My sin was laid on him
In justice God raised up His rod
It fell upon his body
I know my tears and blood should flow
But Jesus wounds have healed me!

Chorus

Bridge
You surrendered all
You surrendered all
O my king, my blessed saviour
You surrendered all
I surrender all
I surrender all
All to you my blessed saviour
I surrender all

Chorus
