Despised and rejected

He was despised and rejected – a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned out backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care (Isaiah 53:3; NLT).

1. No one likes to be despised,
Unheard, or disregarded, Lord.

2. No one wants to be rejected,
Mocked, unwanted, or ignored.

3. No one likes to be condemned, Lord,
Judged, avoided, pushed away.

4. No one wants to be neglected,
Scorned, or shunned, day after day.

5. No one likes to be disowned, Lord,
Just as we denied your Son —

6. So, may we grow more like him,
And pour your love on everyone.

🖤

We will speak the truth in love,
growing in every way more and more like Christ
(Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

1. Jesus spoke the truth
In love –
It didn’t go down well

2. With Pharisees,
And Sadducees,
And those with stuff to sell

3. Inside the temple:
As he taught,
Each time he paused for breath,

4. The people he reproved
Rejected him,
And planned his death.
