And Did My Savior Die

Representative Text

1 And did my Saviour die for me
Upon the cruel, shameful tree?
Did He such agony endure
For one so worthless, so impure?

O yes, Thou died'st for me;
What can I do for Thee?
I'll true and perfect be,
And follow where Thou leadest me.

2 And can I yet delay to give
My love and homage while I live?
Can I by walking in the flesh,
Open His bleeding wounds afresh? [Refrain]

3 Can I His will and suffering know
And yet in sin still longer go?
Unheeding of His gentle call,
Shall I refuse to give Him all? [Refrain]

4 O God forbid! and let me be
A living sacrifice to Thee;
Body and soul and spirit, Lord,
Keep e'er obedient to Thy Word. [Refrain]
