1. Alas, and did my Savior bleed, And did my Sov'reign die? Would He devote that sacred head For sinners such 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 Maker died For man, the creature's sin. 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.
