Protestant Hymns of the Passion

Man of Sorrows

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;
Sealed 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!
