Lyrics : Man of Sorrows
I was with you in the garden, on the night you were betrayed
I heard you say, “watch and wait, while I go and pray”
Then I heard you cry in agony to your Father up above
“If this cup can’t pass me by, then let Your will be done”.
 
Then a little while later, I’m sure I heard you say
“The time has come for me to go, my betrayer’s on his way”
Then Judas appeared with the soldiers and the priests
And I saw him walk up to you and kiss you on the cheek.
 
Chorus:
Man of sorrows, my heart cries out to you
Man of sorrows, what are you going to do
They’re taking you away, I don’t know what to say
Lord I’m so afraid for you.... Man of sorrows...what can I do?
 
Well you said I would deny you, but I did not believe
I said that I would rather die, before I’d ever leave
But three times in succession, You, I said I didn’t know
And I never realized until I heard the rooster crow.
 
Chorus:
Man of sorrows, my heart cries out to you
Man of sorrows, what am I going to do
I’ve turned your love away, I don’t know what to say
Lord I’m so afraid of losing you.... Man of sorrows...what can I do?
 
I saw them nail you to the cross, I saw them pierce you in the side
I heard you say “ Father forgive them” before you died
And it was in the next few days, I came to understand
That you indeed had come to die to redeem all men.
 
Chorus:
Man of sorrows, my heart cries out to you
Man of sorrows, forever I’ll be true
I’ll walk with you each day, do everything you say
I’ll follow in the way with you... Man of sorrows...I’ll live for you.
          Man of sorrows...I’ll die for you.
