Alas! and did my Saviour


    • Alas! and did my Saviour bleed, 
    • and did my Sovereign die? 
    • Would He devote that sacred head 
    • for such a worm as I? 

    • Was it for crimes that I had done, 
    • He groaned upon the tree? 
    • Amazing pity, grace unknown, 
    • and love beyond degree! 

    • Well might the sun in darkness hide, 
    • and shut his glories in, 
    • when Christ, the great Creator, died 
    • for man the creature‟s sin. 

    • Thus might I hide my blushing face 
    • while His dear cross appears, 
    • dissolve my heart in thankfulness, 
    • and melt mine eyes to tears. 

    • But drops of grief can ne‟er repay 
    • the debt of love I owe; 
    • here, Lord, I give myself away, 
    • „This all that I can do!
