Hallelujah, What a Savior

21 05 2006

I was listening to “Hallelujah, What a Savior” this morning and was so blessed to consider the words. Additionally, I am so thankful to the folks at Sovereign Grace, particularly Bob Kauflin for updating the historic hymns in recent days.  I love singing songs that are distinctly biblical, that liberals and heretics cannot sing. 

Enjoy the words, but enjoy the Savior to whom the words point and reflect.

“Man of Sorrows” what a name

For the Son of God who came

Ruined sinners to reclaim

Hallelujah, what a Savior

Hallelujah, what a Savior

Bearing shame and scoffing rude

In my place condemned He stood

Sealed my pardon with His blood

Guilty vile and helpless we

Spotless Lamb of God was He

Full atonement can it be

Hallelujah, what a Savior

Hallelujah, what a Savior

Lifted up was He to die

“It is finished!” was His cry

Now in heaven exalted high

When He comes, our glorious King

All His ransomed home to bring

Then anew this song we’ll sing

 

Hallelujah, what a Savior

Hallelujah, what a Savior

I agree, that’s an amazing hymn. The text is so powerful, and — as many great hymns do — it contains a concise statement of the Gospel. We were condemned, Christ took our place, His blood has saved us.

Hallelujah, indeed!

Glad you were encouraged. I enjoyed your site (http://spiritualkungfu.blogspot.com/) and the reformed links. I will say the picture of the Treo 700p caused a period of intense temptation though ;-D
