ALAS! AND DID MY SAVIOR BLEED

PASSION

INTRODUCTION

My Jesus I love Thee, I know thou art mine!

For Thee all the follies of sin I resign! 

My gracious redeemer, my Savior art Thou;

If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus 'tis now!



REFRAIN

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!


1

Alas! and did my Savior bleed

And did my Sov’reign die?

Would He devote that sacred head

For such a worm as I?


2

Thy body slain, sweet Jesus, Thine

And bathed in its own blood


While the firm mark of wrath divine,


His Soul in anguish stood.



3

Was it for crimes that I had done


He groaned upon the tree?


Amazing pity! grace unknown!


And love beyond degree!



4


Well might the sun in darkness hide


And shut his glories in,


When Christ, the mighty Maker died,


For man the creature’s sin.
