Easter Song: “Man of Sorrows”

This is one of my favorite hymns. I think I posted it last year, but it definitely deserves repeating.

1. ‘Man of sorrows!’ what a name

For the Son of God who came

Ruined sinners to reclaim!

Hallelujah, what a Savior!

2. Bearing shame and scoffing rude,

In my place condemned He stood,

Seal’d my pardon with His blood;

Hallelujah, what a Savior!

3. Guilty vile, and helpless we,

Spotless Lamb of God was He;

Full atonement! can it be?

Hallelujah, what a Savior!

4. Lifted up was He to die,

‘It is finished,’ was His cry;

Now in heav’n exalted high,

Hallelujah, What a Savior!

5. When He comes, our glorious King,

All His ransomed home to bring,

Then anew this song we’ll sing,

Hallelujah, what a Savior!

I recently heard David Potter‘s new tune and recording of this song. Here’s the acoustic version.
