Alas and Did My Savior Bleed

Alas and did my Savior bleed
And did my Sovereign die?
Would he devote that sacred Head
For sinners such as I?

Was it for sins that I have done
He suffered on the tree?
Amazing pity! Grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!

Well might the sun in darkness hide (echo)
And shut His glory in (echo)
When Christ the great Redeemer died
For man the creature’s sin

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

But drops of grief can ne’er repay (echo)
The debt of love I owe (echo)
Here, Lord, I give myself away
‘Tis all that I can do
