All We Like Sheep

 


We tread out time, we dance in our doubt
We suppress the truth lest it find us out
But the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

All we like sheep have gone astray 
We have turned every one to his own way
But the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

He became sin for us
He who knew no sin
For he knows that we are but dust
But this dust he shall defend

And he was cut off on that tree
Alone forsaken for you and for me
That we might become righteousness
Now the substitute scapegoat we confess

By his wounds now we are healed
By His Spirit we are sealed
The suffering servant from above
Laid down his life for us in love

All we like sheep have gone astray 
We have turned every one to his own way
But the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
