Man Of Sorrows

by Rob Halligan



This took an hour to record. Its a great old song.

Written…short ly before his death, this was the last hymn I heard Mr. Blisssing. It was at a meet ing in Farwell Hall in Chicago [Il li nois], con­duct ed by Henry Moore house. A few weeks be fore his death Mr. Bliss vis it ed the State pri son at Jack son, Mi chi gan, where, af ter a ve ry touch­ing ad dress on “The Man of Sorrows,” he sang this hymn with great ef­fect. Many of the prisoners dated their conversion from that day.

When Mr. Moody and I were in Paris, holding meetings in the old church which Napoleon had granted to the Evangelicals, I frequently sang this hymn as a solo, ask ing the congragation to join in the single phrase, “Hallelujah, what a Saviour,” which they did with splendid ef­fect. It is said that the word “Hallelujah” is the same in all languages. It seems as though God had prepared it for the great jubilee of heaven, when all his children shall have been gathered home to sing “Hallelu­jah to the Lamb!”
