Verse 1
Man of sorrows, what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

Verse 2
Bearing shame and scoffing rude
In my place condemned he stood
Sealed my pardon with his blood
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

Verse 3
Guilty, helpless, lost were we
Blameless Lamb of God was he
Sacrificed to set us free
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

Verse 4
He was lifted up to die
“It is finished” was his cry
Now in heaven exalted high
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

Verse 5
When he comes our glorious King
All his ransomed home to bring
Then anew this song we’ll sing
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

  Sample Introduction

On the cross, Jesus cried out, “It is finished!” and breathed his last, as he gave his life for our sake. This man of suffering, who took up our pain and bore our sin, was despised and rejected by mankind and forsaken by his Father in order to pardon us and bring us peace. We praise this man of sorrows: he was pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities, and by his wounds we are healed.
