1 Was it for me, for me alone,
The Saviour left His glorious throne;
The dazzling splendours of the sky,
Was it for me He came to die?
It was for me, yes, all for me,
O love of God, so great so free!
O wondrous love, I'll shout and sing,
He died for me, my Lord and King!
2 Was it for me sweet angel strains
Came floating o'er Judea's plains?
That starlight night so long ago,
Was it for me God plann’d it so? [Refrain]
3 Was it for me the Saviour said,
'Pillow thy weary, aching head,
Trustingly on thy Saviour's breast?'
Was it for me, Can I thus rest? [Refrain]
4 Was it for me He wept and pray’d,
My load of sin before Him laid;
That night within Gethsemane,
Was it for me that agony? [Refrain]
5 Was it for me He bow’d His head
Upon the Cross, and freely shed
His precious blood—that crimson tide,
Was it for me the Saviour died? [Refrain]
