It’s Holy Week… a week of great importance for Christians. A week that brings with it a wide range of emotions… from the solemn to the celebratory.
One thing that really connects me to this week is music. There are plenty of songs that bring the week home and make it real to me.
One those is “By His Wounds”. It weaves Isaiah 53:5 into the lyrics.
“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.”
This is one of the many songs that I’ll listen to several times this week. What songs are on your Holy Week playlist?
