      3 He is despised and rejected by men, 
          A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. 
          And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; 
          He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 
           4 Surely He has borne our griefs 
          And carried our sorrows; 
          Yet we esteemed Him stricken, 
          Smitten by God, and afflicted. 
           5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, 
          He was bruised for our iniquities; 
          The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, 
          And by His stripes we are healed. 

    Isaiah 53

    Contemplation on Paschal Hymn "Thine is the Power" by H.H. Pope Shenouda III
