WHAT MAN IS THIS
1. What man is this now laid to rest
Mary’s arms, held tightly?
and beaten, crucified,
man who seems so unsightly?
This, this is Christ, the Lord,
Who died for us of His own accord.
Praise, praise the Son of God,
The Suffering Servant, Jesus.
2. O why did we treat You callously?
why did we spurn Your love so free?
sins You bore upon Yourself
washed away completely.
3. So let us enter that stone-cold tomb
die with Him who so loves us.
mercy great now frees us from
Father’s awesome justice.
