Lyrics

Verse 1
Alas! and did my Saviour bleed?
And did my Sovereign die?
Would he devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?

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

Verse 3
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.
