Alas! and did my Savior bleed
And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a wretch as I?
Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!
Alas, my Savior bled.
Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut his glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker died,
For man, the creature’s sin.
My God, why would you shed your blood,
so pure and undefiled,
to make a sinful one, like me,
the Father’s precious child?
