|Light in the Darkness|
|Alas! and Did My Saviour Bleed||221|
|Isaac Watts, 1674-1748||R. E. Hudson|
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
Was it for crimes that I have done, He groaned up-on the tree?
Amaz-ing pit - y, grace unknown, And love beyond degree !
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!
