Man of Sorrows, Lamb of God

Man of sorrows Lamb of God
By His own betrayed
The sin of man and wrath of God
Has been on Jesus laid

Silent as He stood accused
Beaten mocked and scorned
Bowing to the Father's will
He took a crown of thorns

On that rugged cross
My salvation
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out
Praise and honor unto Thee

Sent of heaven God's own Son
To purchase and redeem
And reconcile the very ones
Who nailed Him to that tree

Now my debt is paid
It is paid in full
By the precious blood
That my Jesus spilled

Now the curse of sin
Has no hold on me
Whom the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed

See the stone is rolled away
Behold the empty tomb
Hallelujah God be praised
He's risen from the grave!

I hope that you will remember what this Easter season is all about as you read the lyrics to this song.
We sing it in church a lot, and I never really noticed how beautiful the words are, or how relevant they are to Easter until now! If you have never heard this song sung with music, I would encourage you to look it up and listen to it.
Have a blessed Easter Sunday, celebrating our risen Saviour!
