Hallelujah, What a Savior!

Do you know this hymn? I don't really remember hearing it until I moved to Blythe for some reason, but I love the words! It was naturally in my head all day as the Bible study I'm leading was in Isaiah 53 early this afternoon.  

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!

I am so thankful for the Lord's faithfulness, for He has secured the salvation of my soul with His blood! He was pierced for my transgressions, crushed for my iniquities, punished so I may have peace and by His wounds I am healed.  May this ever be my source of all joy and thankfulness! 

No other song title is so worthy of an exclamation point!
