Sung during the Sunday worship at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London (Spurgeon’s).

Hymn 246 from our hymn book, Psalms & Hymns of Reformed Worship.

‘MAN of Sorrows!’ what a name
For the Son of God, Who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim!
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood,
Sealed my pardon with His blood:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

Guilty, vile, and helpless, we:
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
‘Full atonement!’—can it be?
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

‘Lifted up’ was He to die,
‘It is finished!’ was His cry;
Now in Heaven exalted high:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew this song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!
