Hymn/Song Information

Like sheep we went astray And broke the




Like sheep we went astray,
And broke the fold of God,
Each wandering in a different way,
But all the downward road.


How dreadful was the hour
When God our wanderings laid,
And did at once his vengeance pour,
Upon the Shepherd's head!


How glorious was the grace
When Christ sustained the stroke
His life and blood the Shepherd pays
A ransom for the flock.


His honour and his breath
Were taken both away,
Joined with the wicked in his death,
And made as vile as they.


But God shall raise his head
O'er all the sons of men,
And make him see a numerous seed,
To recompense his pain.


"I'll give him," saith the Lord,
A portion with the strong;
He shall possess a large reward,
And hold his honours long."




---Alternative verses---


But God hath raised his head
O'er all the sons of men,
And make him see a numerous seed,
To recompense his pain.
