207. It is Jesus

1 Behold! One cometh in the way,
In humble garments clad;
The poorest of the poor is He,
No pillow for His head.
The hungry, weary, sick and sad
In crowds about Him press,-
To ev'ry one He gives relief,-
What manner of man is this?

Chorus:
It is Jesus, it is Jesus,
The Man of Galilee;
It is Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Who died on Calvary.

2 What words of truth and grace He spoke,
Ne'er heard on earth before:
The burdened sinner hears that voice,
And fells His sins no more.
He calls the dead to life again,
Bids winds and billows cease,-
None other man such works hath done,-
What manner of man is this? [Chorus]

3 They lead Him forth to Calvary,-
O see Him bleed and die!
His parched lips are pleading now
For those who crucify!
His head is bowed, the cup has passed,
His Spirit finds release,-
He suffered thus for you and me,-
What manner of man is this? [Chorus]

4 But lo! what wondrous thing is done?
The grave has lost its dead!
to weeping ones He reappears,
When all their hope had fled.
He lingers but a little while,
To comfort and to bless;
The Heav'ns receive Him from their sight,-
What manner of man is this? [Chorus]
