Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed?, #204

Lyrics

Verse 1
Alas! and did my Savior bleed?
And did my Sov’reign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?

Verse 2
Was it for crimes that I have done,
He groan’d upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!

Verse 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.

Verse 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.
