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 ?
 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

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 !
Refrain

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!

Refrain
