Lunchtime Listening

Emmanuel: A Musical Celebration of the Life of Christ. My Little Sprout selected this for lunchtime listening. It might be more typical fare during the Christmas season than Lent, but as usual her mature taste in music has inspired me.

Although all the music and words are compelling, I was especially drawn into "Man of Sorrows". Perhaps I need to do lunchtime listening more often.

2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:2-5 KJV
