130. Man of sorrows! what a name

1 Man of sorrows! what a name
for the Son of God, who came
ruined sinners to reclaim:
Alleluia! what a saviour!

2 Mocked by insults harsh and crude,
in my place condemned he stood,
sealed my pardon with his blood:
Alleluiah, what a saviour!

3 Guilty, helpless, lost were we;
blameless Lamb of God was he,
sacrificed to set us free:
Alleluia! what a saviour!

4 He was lifted up to die;
'It is finished!' was his cry;
now in heaven exalted high:
Alleluia! what a saviour!

5 When he comes, our glorious king,
all his ransomed home to bring,
then again this song we'll sing:
Alleluia! what a saviour!
