Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs ~ 'Man of Sorrows'

My favorite hymnal is the Trinity Hymnal (Baptist version) because it has such a huge variety of musically rich and theologically sound hymns--many are very familiar, while some are 'new' to us. My husband recently reminded me that you can listen to the tunes to these hymns HERE .

"Man of Sorrows"

Man of Sorrows! what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned he stood,
Sealed my pardon with his blood:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

Guilty, vile, and helpless, we;
Spotless Lamb of God was he;
Full atonement! can it be?
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

Lifted up was he to die,
"It is finished!" was his cry:
Now in heav'n exalted high:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

When he comes, our glorious King,
All his ransomed home to bring,
Then anew this song we'll sing:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!
