Scripture: Isaiah 53:3-5
Theme: Lent

1.  Alas! And did my Savior bleed,    
    And did my Sovereign die!    
    Would He devote that sacred head    
    For sinners such as I!

2.  Was it for sins that I have done    
    He suffered on the tree?    
    Amazing pity! Grace unknown!    
    And love beyond degree!

3.  Well might the sun in darkness hide,     
    And shut its glories in,    
    When Christ, the great Redeemer, died    
    For human creatures' sin.

4.  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.
