263. Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed

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 Christ, the mighty Maker, died
for his own 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.
