“Man of Sorrows” knows my grief—
He can soothe and bring relief,

“Man of Sorrows” knows my grief—
He can soothe and bring relief,
Who himself such pain did bear,
That none other can compare.

All that sinners put him through
No one shared and no one knew.
I am not thus left alone,
All I face to him is known.

He whose sorrows mine exceed
Bends to meet me in my need.
In the depth of love divine,
By his pain he buries mine.
