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 crimes that I have done, 
	he groaned upon the tree? 
	Amazing pity! Grace unknown! 
	And love beyond degree!

3.	Well might the sun in darkness hide, 
	and shut its glories in, 
	when God, the mighty maker, died 
	for his own creature's sin.

4.	Thus might I hide my blushing face 
	while his dear cross appears; 
	dissolve my heart in thankfulness, 
	and melt mine eyes to tears.

5.	But drops of tears can ne'er repay 
	the debt of love I owe. 
	Here, Lord, I give myself away; 
	'tis all that I can do.
