Alas! And did my Saviour bleed

Alas! and did my saviour bleed
and did my Sovereign die?
Did he devote that sacred head
for such a one as I?

2. Was it for sins that I had done
he suffered on the tree?
Amazing pity, grace unknown
and love beyond degree!

3. Well might the sun in darkness hide
and shut his glories in
when God, the mighty Maker, died
for man, the creature’s sin.

4. So might I hide my blushing face
while his dear cross appears,
dissolve my heart in thankfulness
and melt my eyes to tears.

5. Dear Saviour, how can I repay
the debt of love I owe?
Lord, take my very self, I pray,
my all I give to you.
