Greg Habegger and I have been working on a hymn based on Isaiah 53 for some time. Rather than focusing on select themes from the Servant Song, my desire with the text was to meditate on it line by line, allowing the Lord’s people to essentially sing the Scriptures. Greg provided an ideal tune, capturing the pathos of the song with what I believe are rich, almost haunting harmonies. We both pray that the Lord will use our labors to exalt the Lord Jesus, by whose stripes sinners are healed. SDG.
