Isaiah 53:5-9

Leader: He was oppressed and afflicted, 
  yet he did not open his mouth; 
  he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, 
  and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, 
  so he did not open his mouth. 

ALL: We all, like sheep, have gone astray, 
  each of us has turned to our own way; 
  and the Lord has laid on him 
  the iniquity of us all.

Leader: He was assigned a grave with the wicked, 
  and with the rich in his death, 
  though he had done no violence, 
  nor was any deceit in his mouth. 

ALL: But he was pierced for our transgressions, 
  he was crushed for our iniquities; 
  the punishment that brought us peace was on him, 
  and by his wounds we are healed!
