#129: At the Cross

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Alas! and did my Savior bleed?

And did my Sov’reign die?

Would He devote that sacred head

For such a worm as I?

CHORUS

At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,

And the burden of my heart rolled away — (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 upon the tree?

Amazing pity! grace unknown!

And love beyond degree!

CHORUS

3

Well might  the sun in darkness hide

And shut his glories in,

When Christ, the  mighty Maker, died

For man the creature’s sin.

CHORUS

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!

CHORUS
