Man of Sorrows, what a name

“Man of Sorrows,” what a name
For the Son of God who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim!
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood;
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Guilty, vile, and helpless, we,
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
Full redemption—can it be?
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Lifted up was He to die,
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in heaven exalted high;
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!
When He comes, our glorious King,
To His kingdom us to bring,
Then anew this song we’ll sing
  Hallelujah! what a Savior!

Mark 15:16 tells us that “the soldiers led Him away within the courtyard, that is, the praetorium, and called together the whole cohort. ”

The number of Roman soldiers in a cohort is about 500 men or a tenth of a legion ( approx. 5000) Knowing that, reread Mark 15 and consider how He suffered (not only upon the cross) for us.

For example, how would we feel if only one person were to mock us, spit upon us, beat us, slap us? What about 500?

And He, the spotless Lamb of God, suffered and died, shedding His sinless blood for all of those Roman soldiers.

“But God commends His own love to us in that WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS, Christ died for us. ”

Romans 5:8

The compassion He had for a miserable man like myself rather made him a man of sorrow having took my sin upon himself to Calvary.

What a Saviour indeed!!!!

You took away death that was ours and you gave us your life.

What manner of love this is.

Hallelujah to your name.

Unworthy as we are you had so much compassion on us. That you gave your only son as a ransom for our lives.

What can say???

What can sing????

Praise be your Holy name.

I worship you all the days of my life.

Whenever I listen to this song, Isaiah 53 comes to my remembrance and I see myself operating in the realm of love. The world would have become a place of hopelessness as the lake of fire would be a constant in humanity but here comes the greatest gift ever (THE GIFT OF FULL REDEMPTION)

Woke up this morning with this song on my mind and I just had to look for it and sing. “Lord, I thank you for the cross; that you didn’t shy away from suffering such shame for my sake. Help me to live daily for you”

This song puts me in a state of contrition each time I sing or hear others sing it. I imagine what it was like at that very moment on the cross... all that He went through... And I gives me this joy and a feeling of assurance. To God be the glory... What a Saviour!
