man of Sorrow! (not me)

Man of Sorrow

Man of Pain

You took it all

Without any gain.

You loved us all

With gentle eyes

Man of Sorrow

Man of pain

 

39 plus one

Lashes great fall on your back

A crown of thorns

Pressed down around your head

The blood runs down

and yet you cry

'So Many lost;

So many die.'

 

Man of sorrow

Man of Pain

Leave it now.

And cry again

Man of sorrow

Man of pain

Your troubled heart

Feels my pain.

 

Lifted up to die

Bitter gall served fresh

As wine

Yet you'd do it again

for One lost sheep

That beats in the air.

 

Man of sorrow

Man of pain

When is it enough?

So much grief

You swallow up

Yet you bore it

And demand me live-

Man of sorrow

I humbled myself down.

 

All glory to you

Man of sorrow

All thrones belong to you

Man of pain

You gave me life and

Even more

I have nothing

But myself to give -

Yet I keep taking it back

Man of sorrow

Man of Pain.
