Alas! and did my Savior bleed

Alas! and did my Savior bleed?
  And did my Sov’reign die,
Would He devote that sacred head
  For such a worm as I?
Was it for sins that I had 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 the incarnate Maker died
  For man, His 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.
YURI ang balaang bugoy

I was really touched by the lyrics of the song. I haven't played it yet. I just read it slowly and it bursts my into tears. Yes! How incredible are God is! He gave up Himself to a sinful and unfaithful me. I couldn't describe how much He loves me! O LORD JESUS! You are Worthy of glory, honor and praise!
