1 Alas, and did my Savior bleed?
And did my Sov'reign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For sinners such as I?
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!
2 Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree!
Amazing pity! grace unknown,
And love beyond degree![Chorus]
3 Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut His glories in
When Christ, the mighty Maker died,
For man, the creature's sin.[Chorus]
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![Chorus]
