Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed?

      Alas! And Did My Savior Bleed (1/27/2012)

Words:  Isaac Watts
Music:   Ralph E. Hudson

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

Chorus

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

Chorus

Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut his glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker died
For man, the creature’s sin.

Chorus

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

Chorus

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!

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!
