      Anthem - Man of Sorrows        Larson


Surely He has borne our griefs.  Surely He has borne our sorrows.  He was wounded for us, bruised and rejected for us.  The chastisement of our sin was placed on Him.

Surely He has borne our griefs.  Surely He has borne our sorrows.  He was chosen for us, alone, he stands there for us.  The sins of all the world were placed on Him.  All we like sheep have gone astray, we’ve turned to our own way, yet by His stripes we have been healed.  Messiah, holy Lamb of God, Redeemer full of love, rejected Man of Sorrows.  “Man of Sorrows,” what a name for the Son of God, who came ruined sinners to reclaim!  Hallelujah, what a Savior!  Surely He has borne our griefs.
