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 honor 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

Man Of Sorrows - In the Bible [Verses & Devotional]

We can find comfort in the song Man of Sorrows by Hillsong Worship. It reminds us of the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross. He was betrayed by his own people, beaten, mocked, and scorned, and took a crown of thorns. He was sent of heaven, God's own Son, to purchase and redeem us. 

The Bible tells us in Isaiah 53:3-5, “He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” 

Jesus paid the ultimate price for us on the cross. He bore our suffering and was pierced for our transgressions. He was the perfect sacrifice for our sins. We can now be free from the curse of sin because of His sacrifice. 

The song reminds us of the joy we can have in knowing that Jesus rose from the grave. He conquered death and now we can have eternal life. The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 15:55-57, “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 

We can find hope and joy in knowing that Jesus conquered death and rose from the grave. We can be free from the curse of sin and have eternal life. Let us praise and honor Him for His sacrifice.
