Alas and Did My Savior Bleed Lyrics & Hymn

1 Alas! and did my Savior bleed, 
and did my Sovereign die!
Would he devote that sacred head 
for sinners such as I? 

2 Was it for crimes that I have done, 
he groaned upon the tree? 
Amazing pity! Grace unknown! 
And love beyond degree! 

3 Well might the sun in darkness hide, 
and shut its glories in, 
when God, the mighty maker, died 
for his own creature’s sin. 

4 Thus might I hide my blushing face 
while his dear cross appears; 
dissolve my heart in thankfulness, 
and melt mine eyes to tears. 

5 But drops of tears can ne’er repay 
the debt of love I owe. 
Here, Lord, I give myself away; 
’tis all that I can do.
