What's going on at Easter? Why did Jesus have to die?
These are the kind of questions Children want to know, and Sunday School teachers want to help them with!
God explains it all through the Old Testament, and one very special place is in Isaiah, chapter 53, verse 6: "We all, like sheep, have gone astray; we've turned, each one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all"
But what is "iniquity"? And who is "Him"? This song explains!

... it's a verse we need to hear!
... and it's a NEW SONG on the website today!
This song has been 'brewing' for six months now - I wrote it on holiday in France, inspired by Isaiah 53:6, and a pop song about a boy who doesn't do any washing up...(!!!)
It's very up-beat, which might surprise you for Isaiah 53:6, but I figure that (a) it's GREAT NEWS, and (b) we want to REMEMBER this bible verse, so... let's dance!
Anyway - it's a good song for Easter, or any other time of year. The kids will love it, and I don't think you'll get it out of your head for a while...
You can listen on the jukebox, click here.
You can buy the complete track (and not have that annoying "You're listening to MGBT..." bit in it!), or backing track etc. Sheet music is free - click the button on the jukebox! - or go straight to the store.
New today - on the website anyway! This was a great favourite at our holiday club in 2007, and I've only just got round to getting the recording sorted out. Oops - sorry!
Never mind - better late than never.
Luke 19v10 is a great verse about Jesus - what did he come to do? Seek and save the lost! Don't forget it - because that includes you and me :D
Enjoy the song - it's a rappy kind of memory-verse thing - it's on the Jukebox (with PDF sheet music for free) and available as a download package (MP3) in the Store
