Hallelujah! What a Savior ~ hymn

Hallelujah what a savior

This is a day late, I realize that but I didn’t want to skip sharing another of my favorite hymns. If I forget to schedule the post, it often does not get done on Sundays. We try hard to spent time with our family (church and biological) and not get caught up in other things on Sundays. So, since I didn’t schedule it for yesterday, it didn’t get done. I know you understand. Anyway, on to the hymn. . .

Do you ever think through the whole process of Jesus coming down from heaven to live on this earth, walk through temptations and those around him full of doubt, to stumble his way to Calvary carrying the burden of the cross, to exchange that for a bigger burden of the sins of the world, to his death and burial, then to the resurrection and his triumph over death? What about what is still to come? He will be coming again! What a day that will be!

This hymn is one that is such a triumphant reminder of all that Jesus went through for me. It is a personal recognition of what I have been given. The “man of sorrows” that took it all on his own shoulders so that when he returns to take me home to heaven I can go. I can stand before the judgment seat, knowing full well that I am washed clean by his blood.

I really like this hymn and the reminder it is for me of my Savior.

At Home.


Hallelujah! What a Savior

words and music: Phillip P Bliss (1875)

1 Man of sorrows what a name
for the Son of God, who came
ruined sinners to reclaim:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!

2 Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
in my place condemned he stood,
sealed my pardon with his blood:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!

3 Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
spotless Lamb of God was he,
“Full atonement!” can it be?
Hallelujah, what a Savior!

4 Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished” was his cry;
now in heaven exalted high:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!

5 When he comes, our glorious King,
all his ransomed home to bring,
then anew this song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!
