What Manner of man is this who talks to the sinful what manner of man is this

Post by Singer at heart » Thu Jun 29, 2017 1:32 pm

Have only ever heard this song at a church I used to attend years ago and can't remember the words I know it talked about the winds and waves obey his will and at the end of the chorus what glory what honor what power what Manner of man. So I believe that is the title of the song. I haven't been able to find it anywhere does anyone know it.

Hi Singer at heart,

are these the lyrics you heard?

What manner of man is this who tires as soon as I
What manner of man is this, this man that I've seen cry
when His friend faced death
But with His next breath raised him yet alive
What manner of man is this whom winds and seas obey
What kind of man is this who teaches how to pray like we've never known
Go before the throne of the Father on high

Chorus
He is Jesus, King of creation
He is Jesus, Lord of all nations
Bound up in humanness, needing food and sleep and rest
Fully man, yet wholly God
What manner of man is this

What manner of man is this, who stands out from the crowd
What kind of man is this before whom a father bows
and with sorrowed voice makes the humble choice to beg his daughter's life
What manner of man is this who makes a blind man see
and frees an outcast soul from his leprosy
Takes a laughingstock, and then makes him walk just like you and me

Chorus

What manner of man is this, who stands in Pilate's hall
while screaming crowds insist He die and suffer all
What kind of man is this, suspended 'tween earth and heav'n,
in blood and agony, so I could be forgiv'n
What manner of man is this
What manner of God is this

This is the song that comes to my mind:

HE'S THE LORD OF GLORY (WHAT MANNER OF MAN IS THIS?)
Words by Phyllis C Spiers (1950)

1. Behold what manner of man is this,Who stills the raging sea?
He heals the sick, the lame, the halt, And makes the blind to see;
He opens all the prison doors, And sets the captives free;
Behold what manner of man is this, What manner of man is He?

Chorus:
He's the Lord of Glory, He is the Great I Am,
The Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and the End;
His name is Wonderful, The Prince of Peace is He,
The Everlasting Father throughout eternity.

2. Behold, what manner of man is this, Who stands between God and man?
His eyes are as a flame of fire and His fan is in His hand.
John saw Him in the seven churches as the sun in brilliancy.
Behold, what manner of man is this, what manner of man is He?

3. Behold, what manner of man is this who sits upon His heavenly throne?
He rules and reigns from heaven above, His beloved and His own;
He's the Lion of the tribe of Juday, the Root of David is He;
Behold what manner of man is this, what manner of man is He?

4. Behold, what manner of man is this who spoke to the woman at the well?
Everlasting life I will give thee, far richer than man can tell;
And whosoever shall drink of this well shall live eternally,
Behold, what manner of man is this, what manner of man is He?

5. Behold, what manner of man is this who spoke to the maimed and halt?
He says, "Thy sins are forgiven thee, take up thy bed and walk."
He stands as a mighty healer now, He cries, "look unto me."
Behold, what manner of man is this, what manner of man is He?

what manner of man is this who walks with the cripple, what manner of man is this who talks to the sinful
and when he looks to the wind and says peace be still in only a moment it obeys his will
what wonder what power what glory what manner of man
(i just remember the second verse)
For thirty long years he lay by the pool, this man was crippled and lame
every time the angel troubled the water the story was always the same
but this time was different, Jesus was there he looked at the man and he answered his prayer
--------------don't remember-----------------------------------
and wondered what manner of man
Hope that helps

Jayreye, those are the lyrics I have been looking for for a very long time! Any idea who sang it? My thought was Heaven Bound Trio but can’t find anything like that by them or anyone else.

I am the writer of "What Manner of Man" recorded by The Perrys on their Songs of Power Album in 1986. Here are the correct lyrics, and thank you for your interest! Jeff Moran
V1 - For hours and hours they had tossed on the sea, with billows raging so high
The poor helpless vessel was fated for ruin and none of the crewmen knew why
But they had the Master of the Sea on board, He came up on deck and beckoned "No more!"
Then the water got still like it had been before, they all marveled "What Manner of Man"

V2 - For 38 years he had lain by the pool, because he was cripple and lame
And each time the angel had troubled the water, the story had ended the same
But this time was different for Jesus was there, He looked at the cripple and answered his prayer
As he took up his bed those around only stared, and marveled "What Manner of Man"

CH - What manner of man is this who walks with the cripple?, What manner of man is this who talks with the sinful?
What manner of man tells the wind to be still, and just in a second it obeys His will?
What compassion, what power, what love, What Manner of Man

Chestnut Mound Music, (c) 1985

Wow...thanks so much for posting, Jeff, as well as for writing this beautiful hymn almost 40 years ago.

In the last 7 years it looks like over 15,000 people have come to this past looking for it, which shows the impact your music has had.

Our world is in need more than ever of getting to know the One who calms the storm and heals the broken (heaven knows I am at the moment). Thank you for your lyrics and your service to the Lord. God bless!

Steve
