“For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him.” Isaiah 53:2 ESV

This is the February memory verse for NorthCreek Church. I felt that I needed to explain who the “young plant” was since we are memorizing these verses individually each month, so I wrote three verses and used the memory verse as the chorus.
“FOR HE GREW UP” (Isaiah 53:2)
VERSES by Glenn Tatum / CHORUS by ESV Bible
MUSIC by Glenn Tatum
Behold, the man named Jesus, He’s the Son of God.
He made Himself a servant, in the likeness of man.
Given up for suffering; treated cruelly with contempt;
This Humble One from heaven died, that we might live through Him.
Behold, the King od heaven, stretched upon the cross.
Oh, how we did not see Him, the scales on our eyes.
Looking up we mocked His name;
Taking on our scorn and shame:
This Holy One from heaven, died, and covered all our sin.
“For he grew up before him like a young plant,
And like a root out of the dry ground;
He had no form or majesty
That we should look at him,
And no beauty that we should desire Him.”
Behold, the suf’fring Servant, laid inside a tomb.
And like a seed that’s planted, up from the grave He arose.
Like a noble tree that reigns;
Of’fring refuge in His shade;
Inviting weary sinners, come, receive new life through Him.
