Every Wednesday I would like to share with you a hymn that has greatly effected the music aspect of worship in my life. I have yet to come up with a clever name for this weekly post, so if you have an idea post a comment here and I might choose from those!
This week’s hymn is by Philip Paul Bliss, titled, “‘Man of Sorrows,’ What A Name.”
“Man of Sorrows,” what a name, for the Son of God who came;
Ruined sinners to reclaim! Hallelujah! What a Savior!
Bearing shame and scoffing rude, in my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood: Hallelujah! What a Savior!
Guilty, vile and helpless we, spotless Lamb of God was He,
“Full atonement!” can it be? Hallelujah! What a Savior!
“Lifted up” was He to die, “It is finished,” was His cry
Now in heaven exalted high, Hallelujah! What a Savior!
When He comes our glorious King, all His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew this song we’ll sing: Hallelujah! What a Savior!
