Lyrics

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

Chorus
At the cross, at the cross, where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day.

Verse 2
Was it for crimes that I have done,
He groaned upon the 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!
