Hallelujah! What a Saviour

Have you ever heard the saying, “Go ahead and take it, it’s free!” Of course, the other saying that goes with it goes something like this, “Nothin’ in life is free!” There are two sides to this because when someone offers you something then it is free to you because it’s a gift; however, it cost the giver something so it wasn’t free originally!

I think we tend to forget that when the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross He paid the price for true believers to become His children. Once someone has accepted the Lord into their hearts it is their responsibility to take up their cross and follow Him! I like to remember, through this song, that our Lord Jesus Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice; therefore, it is my delight, my responsibility, my privilege to serve Him in every area of life! Thank You, Lord, for Your sacrifice!

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 His song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
