Man of Sorrows, Glorious King


For the joy that was before you set
You incurred the world’s SIN debt
You bore the burden of our blame 
You despised the sorrowful shame
Man of Sorrows , what a cost
When our anguish became your loss.
Grief and misery you knew
Suffering servant, woe to you!

Man of Sorrows, King of Glory,  Through your death there is victory
Man of sorrows, Glorious King Of the Lamb and the Lion we sing!

Humiliation  laid you down
You bore the cross and gained the crown
As the Godhead had conceived
Exaltation you received
Lamentation to exaltation
Christ arose for our Salvation
Now at the Father’s right hand 
He sits enthroned and so we stand.

Man of Sorrows, King of Glory,  Through your death there is victory
Man of sorrows, Glorious King Of the Lamb and the Lion we sing!

Man of Sorrows,  King of Glory
To you we lift our offeratory
Songs of joy and hope and praise
All to You we humbly raise
King of Glory, Sovereign 
Majestic Monarch You shall reign
Royal Ruler on your throne
All Dominion is yours alone.

Man of Sorrows, King of Glory,  Through your death there is victory
Man of sorrows, Glorious King Of the Lamb and the Lion we sing!
