VERSE 1:
Alas, and did my Savior bleed
And did my Sovereign die!
Would He devote that sacred head
For sinners such as I?

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

VERSE 3:
Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut its glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker died,
For man the creature’s sin.

VERSE 4:
Thus might I hide my blushing face
While Calvary's cross appears,
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes to tears.

VERSE 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.
