Alas! and did my Savior bleed

And did my Sovereign die?

Did he devote that sacred head

For such a wretch as I?

Was it for crimes that I have done

He groaned upon the tree?

Amazing pity grace unknown 

And love beyond degree.

Well might the sun in darkness hide

And shut his glories in

When God the mighty Maker 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 mine eyes to tears. 

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.

Here Lord I give myself away

'Tis all that I can do.
