Man Of Sorrows (Contemporary)

Matthew Crocker, Brooke Ligertwood

Verse 1
Man of sorrows, Lamb of God, by His own betrayed
The sin of man and wrath of God, has been on Jesus laid

Verse 2
Silent as He stood accused, beaten, mocked, and scorned
Bowing to the Father's will, He took a crown of thorns

Oh that rugged cross my salvation
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out hallelujah
Praise and honour unto Thee

Verse 3
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

Verse 4
See the stone is rolled away, behold the empty tomb
Hallelujah, God be praised, He's risen from the grave
