Man of Sorrows

This past weekend, several organizations in Mississippi came together to worship and talk about missions opportunities. One of the first songs that we sang was "Man of Sorrows" by Hillsong, and all that I could think about was this room at 6AM. 
Many mornings last summer, my team and I sat at this table and sang that song after our quiet time before we began our day. It is a beautiful description of the Gospel and something that we desperately wanted to be able to convey in our place for the summer.
As students begin the processes of summer missions, be in prayer for those who will serve in their hometowns and who stay within the States sharing the Gospel, and also pray for the ones who will go far away, to unknown places and unreached people groups. Pray that they too will know the beauty of this message and share it with courage.

Man of sorrows Lamb of God
By His own betrayed
The sin of man and wrath of God
Has been on Jesus laid
Silent as He stood accused
Beaten mocked and scorned
Bowing to the Father's will
He took a crown of thorns
Oh that rugged cross
My salvation
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out
Praise and honour unto Thee
Sent of heaven God's own Son
To purchase and redeem
And reconcile the very ones
Who nailed Him to that tree
Now my debt is paid
It is paid in full
By the precious blood
That my Jesus spilled
Now the curse of sin
Has no hold on me
Whom the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
See the stone is rolled away
Behold the empty tomb
Hallelujah God be praised
He's risen from the grave
