Light in the Darkness

Alas! and Did My Saviour Bleed 221
Isaac Watts,1674-1748 R. E. Hudson
  1. Alas! and did my Saviour bleed,And did my Sovereign die?
    Would he devote that sacred head For such an one 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 crimes that I have done, He groaned up-on the tree?
    Amaz-ing pit - y, grace unknown, And love beyond degree !
  3. But drops of grief can ne'er re-pay The debt of love I owe;
    Here, Lord, I give my-self away, Tis all that I can do!
