“Man of Sorrows, What a Name”

“Man of Sorrows, What a Name”
by Philip Bliss

“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 atonement! can it be?
Hallelujah! what a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die,
“It is finished,” was His cry;
Now in heav’n exalted high:
Hallelujah! what a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew this song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! what a Savior!

Isn’t this a beautiful hymn? It reminds me that as we enter this Easter season, we get to experience again the culmination of the greatest story ever told. We hear the shouts of the crowd: “Hosanna; Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord” and then, “Crucify Him”.  We hear the sound of a lashing whip, the pounding of nails and the cry of a dying man, “IT IS FINISHED”. But on that third day, there is a deafening sound of a stone being rolled away and these words from God’s messenger, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here. He has risen just as He said!”

We want to wish all of our clients, friends and families a glorious and joyous Easter! May you hear the sounds of this special season in a way that transforms your heart and deepens your love for your Savior and his ultimate sacrifice for YOU.

He has risen; He has risen indeed!
