Alas, and did my Savior bleed

1
Alas, and did my Savior bleed?
  And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
  For such a worm as I?
  At the cross, at the cross where
  I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
  And now I am happy all the day!
2
Was it for sins that I had done
  He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
  And love beyond degree!
3
Well might the sun in darkness hide,
  And shut His glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker, died
  For man, His 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 grief can ne’er repay
  The debt of love I owe;
Here, Lord, I give myself away,
  ’Tis all that I can do.

For so long, I only knew the chorus. But Iā€™m glad to have come across all of the lyrics. Such powerful words.

All those years ago when this was written, the message remains the same now as it did then. Praise God!

We are truly undeserving of God's mercy and grace,

But brethren, let's make God proud.

These songs never used to make sense, until I got Born Again by the Grace of God.

Now every line is The Word manifested in the flesh.

We thank God for the Gospel of Truth.
