Behold My Son, My Servant – Lyrics

1. “Behold, My Son, My Servant,
In Whom My soul delights;
My Spirit is upon Him;
He shall do what is right.
A bruised reed He will not break,
Nor quench a smoking flax;
For truth He brings forth justice
By all His gracious acts.”

2. Thus says the Lord Almighty,
Maker of heav’n and earth,
Creator of all people,
The One Who gives them breath:
“In righteousness I called You,
And I will hold Your hand;
I give You, as a cov’nant,
A light to ev’ry land.”

3. “Behold, My Son, My Servant,
In Whom My soul delights;
For those who sit in darkness
He has become their light.
And new things I shall declare:
His foes shall Christ assail
With zeal like a man of war;
Against them He’ll prevail.”
