Hallelujah! What a Savior!


After making my coffee and finding a quiet place in the house (no small feat with little ones and a dog running around) I often sing songs from my hymnal as part of my morning Bible reading and prayer routine. Today I was struck by the beauty and simplicity of this classic by Philip Bliss, “Hallelujah! What a Savior!” If possible, maybe you can find a quiet place in which to read the words (or sing, if you’re so inclined) as a prayer to God.

“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!
