1. He was despised and was rejected,
"Man of Sorrows", what a name!
He was pierced for our transgressions,
On the cross He bore our shame.
2. He was oppressed and was afflicted,
Like a sheep He did not cry.
He gladly bore our sins and sorrows,
On the cross to joyf'ly die.
Chorus: "Man of Sorrows", how I love
You who bore my sin and shame;
I gladly bear the cross before me,
Sacrificed in Jesus' name.
