What a Man

Sunny HawkinsBuy this song

Innocent man, say something
Why are you doing this for me?
Why don't you weep? You're hurting
They laugh and I can't stand to see

[Chorus]
What a man
The picture of self-sacrifice 
What a love
That would choose friends over life
What a heart
Beating to bring liberty to someone so unworthy as me

Their whipping you; you're bloody
They cannot know that you are God
They've brutalized your body
And now they nail you to a cross

[Chorus]

What a debt
You could have left me to pay
What a gift
Wiping my guilt all away
What a God
To take all the blame for my sins
What a man, what a love, what a friend

You bow your head; you close your eyes
The whole earth quakes; your mother cries
They lay your body in a grave; then you rise

What a love
That would choose friends over life
What a heart
Beating to bring liberty to someone so unworthy as me
What a debt
You could have left me to pay
What a gift
Wiping my guilt all away
What a God
To take all the blame for my sins
What a man, what a love, what a friend

What a man, what a love, what a friend
What a man, what a love, what a friend
What a man, what a love, what a friend
What a man, what a love, what a friend
What a man, what a love, what a friend
