306. Alas! And Did My Savior Bleed?

1 Alas! and did my Savior bleed,
And did my Sov'reign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For sinners such as I?

2 Was it for sins that I have done
He suffered on the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!

3 Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut His glories in
When Christ, the great Redeemer, died
For man the creature's sin.

4 But drops of grief can ne'er repay
The debt of love I owe;
Here, Lord, I give myself away -
'Tis all that I can do.
