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

2. Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!


3. Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut his glories in,
When Christ the mighty Saviour died
For man, the rebel's sin.

4. Thus might I hide my blushing face
While his dear cross appears;
Dissolve, my heart, in thankfulness,
And melt, mine eyes, in tears.

5. 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.
