Sorrow and Love

Verse 1

  Sorrow and love are on display,

By the light of torch and flame;

Betrayal’s kiss and soldier’s sword,

Have detained the mighty Lord.

But through it all Jesus stays still,

For He’s surrendered to God’s will;

To drink in full sin’s bitter cup,

Drowning in sorrow, driven by love,

Drowning in sorrow, driven by love.

Verse 2:

 How great the sorrow and the pain,

Brought to Him by sinful men;

With rod and whip He’s beaten down,

Jagged thorns His mocking crown;

Nailed to the cross and lifted high,

They pierce His hands, His feet and side;

His battered face is drenched with blood:

Covered in sorrow, and crowned with love,

Covered in sorrow, and crowned with love.

Verse 3 

 How great the love that He has shown,

That His life he would lay down;

Though He himself was without sin,

Its dread curse was placed on Him;

He suffered through death’s dark distress,

That we might know God’s righteousness;

He bore the wrath of God above,

How deep His sorrow, How vast His love,

How deep His sorrow, How vast His love.
