In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed


Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed

For the word of the cross . . . is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18

image

Alas! and did my Savior bleed?
And did my Sov’reign die?
Would he devote that sacred head
For sinners such as I?

Was it for crimes that I had done
He suffered on the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!

Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut his glories in,
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 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.

The Hymnal for Worship & Celebration (Word Music).
