7.7.7.8.


1
"MAN of sorrows!" what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to redeem!
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
2
Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In our place condemned He stood;
Purchased are we with His blood -
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
3
Guilty, vile and helpless we,
Spotless Lamb of God was He!
Full atonement - Can it be?
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!
4
Lifted up was He to die,
"It is finished!" was His cry;
Now in heav'n exalted high,
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!
5
Him as Lord we gladly own,
Seated on His Father's throne;
Soon we'll sing in sweeter tone,
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

P.P. Bliss (1838-1876)
