A man of sorrows, Jesus came
To conquer sin and death for man,
That by the power of His name
We might fulfill the father’s plan.
Though He has drunk our bitter cup,
And for our sake His blood was shed,
He is not here, but risen up;
Seek not the living with the dead!
Chorus: He was lifted on the cross
That he might lift us to the Father,
He has risen from the tomb
That through Him we so may rise.
In the beginning was the Word,
The Christ who made the Earth and sky,
The Father’s power was conferred
That He should live and choose to die.
He comprehended every pain,
Knew every weakness, every sin,
For only He could break the chains
And bring the captives home again.
And when in sorrow we in prayer
Approach the Father willingly
To overcome temptation’s snare
Or to endure adversity,
The Holy Ghost can heal our soul,
For the atonement paid the price.
The Savior came to make us whole:
O come receive the living Christ!
