Alas! And Did My Saviour Bleed?
And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred
For such a worm 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
He groaned upon the tree’?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!
Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut his glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker, died,
For man, the creature’s sin.
Thus might I hide my blushing face,
Whilst His dear cross appears.
And melt mine eyes to tears.
But drops of grief can never repay
The debt of love I owe,
Here, Lord, I give myself away,
“Tis all that I can do,
May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!
May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!
