The Suffering Servant is a meditative tableau on the Suffering Servant text of Isaiah chapter 53. The setting depicts the pain, anguish, oppression, spiritual path, and reckoning of the sacrificed "servant" of the world. Through diverse timbres, the text transcends an audible familiarity; hopefully, becoming an internal, reflective experience.

The Bridgewater College Alumni Choir gave the premiere performance in August of 2012 under the direction of the composer. The work has subsequently been performed and recorded by the University of South Florida Chamber Singers, under the direction of Dr. James Bass, and the Western Michigan University Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Kimberley Dunn-Adams.
